EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations make amendments to the Aggregates Levy (General) Regulations 2002 (“the principal Regulations”) consequential upon changes to the time limits in section 32 of the Finance Act 2001. The time limits in section 32 are increased from three years to 4 years by paragraph 28 of Schedule 51 to the Finance Act 2009 (2009 c 10).

Regulation 3 amends regulation 15(7) (concerning claims to tax credits) and regulation 16(6) (concerning repayment of tax credits to a person whose registration has been cancelled) of the principal Regulations.

Regulation 4 amends regulation 28(3) of the principal Regulations (concerning correction of errors in aggregates levy returns).

Regulation 5 makes transitional provision for the purposes of changes to aggregates levy time limits. It ensures that the changes do not allow claims that are already out of time on 31 March 2010 to be brought back into time.

A full Impact Assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
