Corporation Tax: introduction: close companies

There are special rules for ‘close companies’. Close companies are defined in CTA10/S439 (formerly ICTA88/S414).

The rules govern:

  • the computation of income,
  • the definition of distribution, and
  • the assessment of certain loans.

For guidance on close companies see CTM60000 onwards.
