2

: transitional provision

Part 1 5Deemed receipts or expenses

General outline of the provision of this Part of this Schedule

1 (1) This Part of this Schedule makes provision, by reference to the 2012 balance
sheet and the 2012 periodical return of an insurance company (see
paragraphs 2 to 4), for deeming amounts to be receipts or expenses of basic
10life assurance and general annuity business, or non-BLAGAB long-term
business, carried on by the company (see paragraphs 9(1) and (2) and 10(1)
and (2)).

(2) Those amounts are determined in accordance with provision made by or
under paragraphs 5 to 8.

(3) 15The deeming is to have effect for the purpose of calculating the BLAGAB
trade profit or loss or (as the case may be) for the purpose of calculating for
corporation tax purposes the profits of the non-BLAGAB long-term business
(see paragraphs 9(3) and 10(3)).

(4) The general rule is that, subject to exceptions, the receipts or expenses are
20treated as arising over a 10-year period (see paragraphs 11 to 15).

(5) Special provision is made in relation to the operation of sections 83YC to
83YF of FA 1989 (see paragraph 16).

(2) For the purposes of this Part of this Schedule the company is deemed to have
drawn up a balance sheet as at the end of 31 December 2012 in accordance
with generally accepted accounting practice.

(3) For the purposes of this Part of this Schedule the entries shown in this
5deemed balance sheet are deemed to be those entries which would have
been shown in an actual balance sheet of the company drawn up as
mentioned in sub-paragraph (1).

(4) The generally accepted accounting practice that is to be applicable for the
purposes of sub-paragraphs (2) and (3) is the practice that is actually
10adopted for the accounts of the company drawn up for the period in which
31 December 2012 falls.

4 (1) This paragraph applies if an insurance company does not have a periodical
return covering a period ending immediately before 1 January 2013.

(2) For corporation tax purposes the company is deemed to have a periodical
15return covering the period—

(a) beginning immediately after the last period ending before 1 January
2013 that is covered by a periodical return of the company, and

(b) ending immediately before 1 January 2013.

(3) This deemed periodical return is deemed to contain such entries as would be
20included in an actual periodical return of the company covering the period
beginning and ending as mentioned in sub-paragraph (2)(a) and (b).

(4) For corporation tax purposes the period beginning and ending as mentioned
in sub-paragraph (2)(a) and (b) is deemed to be a period of account of the

25The comparison etc

5 (1) In the case of an insurance company, a comparison must be made between—

(a) the amount attributed to shareholders as at 31 December 2012 (see
sub-paragraphs (2) to (4)), and

(b) the cumulative taxed surplus as at 31 December 2012 (see sub-
30paragraph (5) and (6)).

(2) The amount attributed to shareholders as at 31 December 2012 is—

(a) the amount shown in line 75 of Form 14 of the 2012 periodical return
in respect of the whole of the company’s long-term business, less

(b) the amount (if any) shown in the 2012 balance sheet of the company
35in respect of the fund for future appropriations or unallocated
divisible surplus.

(3) In prescribed cases the amount attributed to shareholders as at 31 December
2012 is to be found by making prescribed adjustments to the amount found
by sub-paragraph (2)(a) and (b).

(4) 40In sub-paragraph (3) “prescribed” means prescribed, or of a description
prescribed, by regulations made by the Treasury.

Finance BillPage 407

(5) The cumulative taxed surplus as at 31 December 2012 is found by adding
together the amounts (if any) found by the following paragraphs—

(a) the amount shown in line 13 of Form 14 of the 2012 periodical return
in respect of the whole of the company’s long-term business but
5excluding the amount representing any undistributed
demutualisation surplus of the company for the period of account
ending immediately before 1 January 2013, and

(b) the total amount brought into account for any period of account of
the company as a result of section 83YA(3) of FA 1989 less the total

undistributed demutualisation surplus of the company for the period of
15account in question for the purposes of section 444AF of ICTA.

(7) The difference between the amount attributed to shareholders as at 31
December 2012 and the cumulative taxed surplus as at 31 December 2012 is
referred to in this Part of this Schedule as “the total transitional difference”.

(8) If the amount attributed to shareholders as at 31 December 2012 exceeds the
20cumulative taxed surplus as at 31 December 2012, the total transitional
difference is a positive figure.

(9) If the cumulative taxed surplus as at 31 December 2012 exceeds the amount
attributed to shareholders as at 31 December 2012, the total transitional
difference is a negative figure.

6 (1) 25The insurance company—

with amounts shown in the 2012 balance sheet, determine the

this paragraph must, when added together, equal the total transitional
difference.

includes provision prescribing descriptions of amounts which are, or are

insured before that date.

within sub-paragraph (2)(a) to (d) or, in a case where the regulations provide
for the application of this sub-paragraph, within sub-paragraph (2)(e).
