879L  

Meaning of relevant business and third party acquisition

 

(1)    

This section applies for the purposes of section 879K(3).

 

(2)    

“Relevant business” means—

 

(a)    

in a case where the relevant asset is within paragraph (e) of

 

subsection (2) of section 879A, the business or (as the case

 

may be) the part of the business mentioned in the paragraph of

 

that subsection within which the licensed asset falls, and

 

(b)    

in any other case, the business or (as the case may be) the part

 

of the business mentioned in the paragraph of that subsection

 

within which the relevant asset falls.

 

(3)    

The transferor acquires something in a “third party acquisition” if—

 

(a)    

the transferor acquires it from a company (“C”) and, at the

 

time of that acquisition—

 

(i)    

if the transferor is an individual, the transferor is not

 

a related party in relation to C, or

 

(ii)    

if the transferor is a firm, no individual who is a

 

member of the transferor is a related party in relation

 

to C, or

 

(b)    

the transferor acquires it from a person (“P”) who is not a

 

company and, at the time of that acquisition—

 

(i)    

if the transferor is an individual, P is not connected

 

with the transferor, or

 

(ii)    

if the transferor is a firm, no individual who is a

 

member of the transferor is connected with P.

 

(4)    

But an acquisition is not a “third party acquisition” if—

 

(a)    

its main purpose, or one of its main purposes, is for any person

 

to obtain a tax advantage (within the meaning of section 1139

 

of CTA 2010), or

 

(b)    

it occurs during the period beginning with 8 July 2015 and

 

ending with 31 March 2019.

 

(5)    

In this section “connected” has the same meaning as in Chapter 12 (see

 

section 842).

 

Partial restrictions on debits

 

879M  

When the partial restrictions apply: qualifying IP assets

 

(1)    

Section 879O (the partial restrictions on debits) applies in respect of a

the company acquires the asset concerned on or after 1 April

 

2019 as part of the acquisition of a business,

 

(b)    

the company also acquires qualifying IP assets as part of the

 

acquisition of the business for use on a continuing basis in the

 

course of the business, and

Finance (No. 3) Bill, continued

 
 

(b)    

section 879K (restrictions on debits: acquisition from

 

individual or firm).

 

(3)    

The amount is—
equation: over[cross[char[A],char[N]],char[B]]

 

    

where—

 

A is the expenditure incurred by the company for or in

 

connection with the acquisition of the qualifying IP assets

 

mentioned in subsection (1)(b),

 

B is the expenditure incurred by the company for or in

 

connection with the acquisition of the asset concerned and any

 

other relevant assets acquired with the business, and

 

N is 6.

 

(4)    

The Treasury may by regulations amend the meaning of N.

 

(5)    

In this section—

 

“expenditure” means expenditure that is—

 

(a)    

capitalised for accounting purposes, or

 

(b)    

recognised in determining the profit or loss of the

 

company concerned without being capitalised for

 

accounting purposes,

 

subject to any adjustments under this Part or Part 4 of TIOPA

 

2010;

 

“qualifying IP asset” has the same meaning as in section 879I

 

(see section 879J).

 

879N  

When the partial restrictions apply: acquisition from individual or

 

firm

 

(1)    

Section 879O (the partial restrictions on debits) also applies in respect

 

of a relevant asset of a company if—

 

(a)    

the company acquires the asset on or after 1 April 2019

 

directly or indirectly from an individual or firm (“the

 

transferor”),

 

(b)    

the related party condition is met,

 

(c)    

the third party acquisition condition is met, and

 

(d)    

the amount in subsection (6) is less than 1.

 

(2)    

But section 879O does not apply in respect of the relevant asset if

 

either of the following sections applies in respect of it—

 

(a)    

section 879C (restrictions on debits: pre-FA 2019 relevant

 

assets);

 

(b)    

section 879I (restrictions on debits: no business or no

 

qualifying IP assets acquired).

 

(3)    

The related party condition is met if—

 

(a)    

in a case where the transferor is an individual, the transferor is

 

a related party in relation to the company at the time of the

 

acquisition;

Finance (No. 3) Bill, continued

 
 

(b)    

in a case where the transferor is a firm, any individual who is

 

a member of the transferor is a related party in relation to the

 

company at that time.

 

(4)    

The third party acquisition condition is met if—

 

(a)    

in a case where the relevant asset is goodwill—

 

(i)    

the transferor acquired all or part of the relevant

 

business in one or more third party acquisitions as

 

part of which the transferor acquired goodwill, and

 

(ii)    

the relevant asset is acquired by the company as part

 

of an acquisition of all the relevant business;

 

(b)    

in a case where the relevant asset is not goodwill—

 

(i)    

the transferor acquired the relevant asset in a third

 

party acquisition, and

 

(ii)    

the relevant asset is acquired by the company as part

 

of an acquisition of all the relevant business.

 

(5)    

Section 879L (meaning of relevant business and third party

 

acquisition) applies for the purposes of this section.

 

(6)    

The amount is—
equation: over[char[A],char[B]]

 

    

where—

 

A is the relevant accounting value of third party acquisitions (see

 

subsections (7) to (9)), and

 

B is the expenditure incurred by the company for or in

 

connection with the acquisition of the relevant asset that is—

 

(a)    

capitalised by the company for accounting purposes,

 

or

 

(b)    

recognised in determining the company’s profit or

 

loss without being capitalised for accounting

 

purposes,

 

subject to any adjustments under this Part or Part 4 of TIOPA

 

2010.

 

(7)    

In a case in which the relevant asset is goodwill, the relevant

 

accounting value of third party acquisitions is the notional accounting

 

value of the goodwill mentioned in subsection (4)(a)(i) (“the

 

previously acquired goodwill”).

 

(8)    

In a case in which the relevant asset is not goodwill, the relevant

 

accounting value of third party acquisitions is the notional accounting

 

value of the relevant asset.

 

(9)    

The “notional accounting value” of the previously acquired goodwill,

 

or the relevant asset, is what its accounting value would have been in

 

GAAP-compliant accounts drawn up by the transferor—

 

(a)    

immediately before the relevant asset was acquired by the

 

company, and

 

(b)    

on the basis that the relevant business was a going concern.

879O  

The partial restrictions on debits

 

(1)    

Where this section applies in respect of a relevant asset of a company,

 

the following restrictions have effect.

 

(2)    

If a debit in respect of the relevant asset is to be brought into account

 

by the company for tax purposes under a provision of Chapter 3 (debits

 

in respect of intangible fixed assets) or Chapter 15 (adjustments on

 

change of accounting policy), the amount of that debit is—
equation: cross[char[D],times[char[R],char[A]]]

 

    

where—

 

D is the amount of the debit that would be brought into account

 

disregarding this section (and, accordingly, for the purposes

 

of any calculation of the tax written-down value of the

 

relevant asset needed to determine D, this section’s effect in

 

relation to any debits previously brought into account is to be

 

disregarded), and

 

RA is the relevant amount (see subsection (6)).

 

(3)    

If, but for this section, a debit in respect of any of the relevant assets

 

would be brought into account by the company for tax purposes under

 

a provision of Chapter 4 (realisation of intangible fixed assets), the

 

following two debits are to be brought into account under that

 

provision instead—

 

(a)    

a debit determined in accordance with subsection (4), and

 

(b)    

a debit determined in accordance with subsection (5), which

 

is to be treated for the purposes of Chapter 6 as a non-trading

 

debit (“the non-trading debit”).

 

(4)    

The amount of the debit determined in accordance with this subsection

 

is—
equation: cross[char[D],times[char[R],char[A]]]

 

    

where—

 

D is the amount of the debit that would be brought into account

 

under Chapter 4 disregarding this section (and, accordingly,

 

for the purposes of any calculation of the tax written down

 

value of the relevant asset needed to determine D, this

 

section’s effect in relation to any debits previously brought

 

into account is to be disregarded), and

 

RA is the relevant amount (see subsection (6)).

Finance (No. 3) Bill, continued

 
 

(5)    

The amount of the non-trading debit is—
equation: plus[char[D],minus[times[char[T],char[D]]]]

 

    

where—

 

D is the amount of the debit that would be brought into account

 

under Chapter 4 disregarding this section (but, for the

 

purposes of any calculation of the tax written-down value of

 

the relevant asset needed to determine D, this section’s effect

 

in relation to any debits previously brought into account is not

 

to be disregarded), and

 

TD is the amount of the debit determined in accordance with

 

subsection (4).

 

(6)    

In this section the “relevant amount” means—

 

(a)    

in a case where this section applies in respect of the relevant

 

asset by reason only of section 879M, the amount in

 

subsection (3) of that section;

 

(b)    

in a case where this section applies in respect of the relevant

 

asset by reason only of section 879N, the amount in

 

subsection (6) of that section;

 

(c)    

in a case where this section applies in respect of the relevant

 

asset by reason of both section 879M and 879N, the amount

 

found by multiplying the amount in subsection (3) of section

 

879M by the amount in subsection (6) of section 879N.

 

Supplementary

 

879P  

Date of acquisition of relevant asset

 

(11)    

A company that acquires a relevant asset in pursuance of an

 

unconditional obligation under a contract is to be treated for the

 

purposes of this Chapter as having acquired the asset on the date on

 

which the company became subject to that obligation or (if later) the

 

date on which that obligation became unconditional.

 

(2)    

An obligation is unconditional if it may not be varied or extinguished

 

by the exercise of a right (whether under contract or otherwise).”

 

7    (1)  

The amendments made by this Schedule have effect in relation to accounting

 

periods beginning on or after 1 April 2019.

 

      (2)  

For the purposes of sub-paragraph (1), an accounting period beginning before,

 

and ending on or after, 1 April 2019 is to be treated as if so much of the

 

accounting period as falls before that date, and so much of the accounting

 

period as falls on or after that date, were separate accounting periods.”
