Tax Relief: Loss of Accreditation by the CDFI
CTA2010/Part 7/Chapter 4/S238; ITA/s356
An investor is not entitled to claim relief under the CITR scheme if the Community Development Finance Institution (CDFI) in which the investment is made ceases to be accredited within the five year period beginning on the day the investment is made (the ‘five year period’).
Accreditation lost within the first year of the five year period
Where the accreditation is lost within the first year of the five year period no claim to relief may be made in respect of the investment.
Accreditation lost during second or subsequent year of the five year period
Where accreditation is lost during the second or subsequent years of the five year period the tax years or accounting periods for which investors are not entitled to claim relief can be established as follows:
- Identify the last anniversary of the investment date to occur before the accreditation is lost.
- Identify in which accounting period or tax year that anniversary fell.
- No claim to relief may be made for that, or any later period or year.
|Investment made by an individual||1 June 2004|
|Loss of accreditation by CDFI||1 January 2007|
The last anniversary of the investment before accreditation was lost is 1 June 2006. This falls within the tax year ending 5 April 2007 (2006/7), so no claim may be made for 2006/7, or any later tax year.
