“Part 6

 

Information sharing

 

Information sharing between HMRC and others

 

18  (1)  

Sub-paragraph (2) applies to information which—

 

(a)    

is held as mentioned in section 18(1) of the Commissioners for

 

Revenue and Customs Act 2005 (confidentiality),

 

(b)    

relates to withdrawals from a Lifetime ISA, and

 

(c)    

is relevant to whether an individual is eligible for a bonus under the

 

Help to Buy: ISA Scheme.

 

      (2)  

Information to which this sub-paragraph applies may be disclosed to the

 

Administrator for use for the purpose of establishing whether or not an

 

individual is eligible for a bonus under the Help to Buy: ISA Scheme.

 

      (3)  

In this paragraph—

 

“the Administrator” means the person who for the time being is the

 

Administrator under the Scheme Rules (as from time to time amended

 

or supplemented) of the Help to Buy: ISA Scheme, and

 

“the Help to Buy: ISA Scheme” means the scheme of that name—

 

(a)    

announced by the Treasury in March 2015,

 

(b)    

launched on 1 December 2015,

 

(c)    

for which Scheme Rules were published on that date by the

 

Treasury, and

 

(d)    

which is governed by those Scheme Rules (as from time to time

 

amended or supplemented),

 

            

and paragraph 1(1) (meaning of “bonus”) does not apply for the purposes of

 

this paragraph.

 

      (4)  

Information disclosed in reliance on sub-paragraph (2) may not be further

 

disclosed to any other person without the authority of HMRC (which may be

 

general or specific).

 

      (5)  

If revenue and customs information relating to a person is disclosed in

 

contravention of sub-paragraph (4) and the identity of the person—

 

(a)    

is specified in the disclosure, or

 

(b)    

can be deduced from it,

 

            

section 19 of the Commissioners for Revenue and Customs Act 2005

 

(wrongful disclosure) applies in relation to the disclosure as it applies in

 

relation to a disclosure of such information in contravention of section 20(9)

 

of that Act.

 

      (6)  

In sub-paragraph (5) “revenue and customs information relating to a person”

 

has the meaning given by section 19(2) of the Commissioners for Revenue and

 

Customs Act 2005.

 

      (7)  

A person who holds any information may disclose that information to HMRC

 

or an officer of Revenue and Customs if the disclosure is made for the purposes

 

of the exercise of any of the functions of HMRC, or an officer of Revenue and

 

Customs, under section 1 and this Schedule.

Savings (Government Contributions) Bill, continued

 
 

      (8)  

This paragraph does not limit the circumstances in which information may be

 

disclosed apart from this paragraph.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

It is proposed that a saver buying their first home who has both a Lifetime ISA and a Help to Buy:

 

ISA will get a government bonus from one only of those accounts if they withdraw money from both

 

for their purchase. To enable the necessary cross-checking, this Amendment would allow HM

 

Revenue and Customs (“HMRC”) to provide the Administrator of the Help to Buy: ISA Scheme

 

with information about withdrawals from Lifetime ISAs. The Amendment would also allow anyone

 

to provide HMRC with information for use by HMRC in carrying out their Lifetime ISA functions.
