Definition of “UK allocated equity and liabilities”

24 (1) 15Take Steps 1 to 4 to determine the amount of the UK allocated equity and
liabilities of a relevant foreign bank as at the end of the chargeable period.

Take Steps 5 and 6 to determine how much of that amount is to be treated as
long term equity and liabilities and how much as short term liabilities for the
purposes of Step 3 in paragraph 6(2).

20Step 1

Determine the amount (“A”) of the bank’s assets as at the end of the
chargeable period (subject to any adjustment under paragraph 25(5)).

25as at the end of the chargeable period, of the permanent establishment
through which the bank carries on a trade in the United Kingdom (subject to
any adjustment under paragraph 25(6)).

The proportion which B is of A is “X%”.

Step 3

30In accordance with paragraph 27, determine the amount (“C”) of the bank’s
chargeable equity and liabilities.

Step 4

The amount of the UK allocated equity and liabilities is X% of C.

Step 5

35Determine the proportion (“Y%”) of C which is long term equity and
liabilities.

Step 6

For the purposes of Step 3 in paragraph 6(2), treat Y% of the amount of the
UK allocated equity and liabilities as long term equity and liabilities and the

paragraph (4) applies is to be treated as a liability to which an asset
of N corresponds, and

40relevant foreign bank or N gives rise to the termination of any
arrangements under which any liability covered by the provision
mentioned in sub-paragraph (1)(c) arises.
