Anti-avoidance: scope of the anti-avoidance rule

Paragraph 47 of Schedule 19

The anti-avoidance paragraph refers throughout to the ‘relevant group’ and ‘relevant entity’.

This should be read to include all chargeable entities and groups as defined in Chapter 2 (BKLM200000).

Paragraph 47(13) makes it clear that ‘group’ includes foreign banking groups and relevant non-banking groups but that where the entity in question is a foreign banking group or non-banking group, then where references to ‘relevant group’ are made, this refers to the relevant members of the group in the collective.

For foreign banking groups and relevant non-banking groups for the purposes of the anti-avoidance rules ‘relevant member’ has the same meaning as within paragraph 18 and 20 and includes a relevant foreign bank.
