These Regulations amend the Mutual Societies (Transfers of Business) (Tax) Regulations 2009 (SI 2009/2971) (“the principal Regulations”) to remove erroneous words from regulation 17 of those Regulations.
Regulation 17 of the principal Regulations prevents section 179 of the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992 (c 12) applying in respect of assets acquired as a result of specified relevant transfers by industrial and provident societies. The erroneous words incorrectly limit the intended operation of regulation 17.
Regulation 1 deals with citation, commencement and effect. Regulation 1(2) provides that these Regulations shall have effect in relation to any relevant transfer that takes place on or after the date on which these Regulations come into force.
Regulation 2 deals with interpretation.
Regulation 3 omits the erroneous words “as a consequence of the relevant transfer” from regulation 17 of the principal Regulations.
A full and final Impact Assessment has not been produced for this instrument as a negligible impact on the private or voluntary sector is foreseen.
