SI2006/964 Regulation 13 - tax treatment of an interest distribution in a fund
For accounting periods commencing from 1 April 2006 interest distributions paid by an authorised investment fund (AIF) are treated as loan relationship debits.
Note that the carrying back of a loan relationship deficit is not allowable (SI2006/964 Regulation 14). Any excess interest distributions may only be carried forward to the next accounting period as a loan relationship deficit and deducted in that succeeding period.
Accounting periods commencing before 1 April 2006
For accounting periods commencing before 1 April 2006, and ending after 31 March 1996, an interest distribution is allowed as a deduction against the AIF’s profits for CT purposes, except that an excess deduction so created may not be carried back, (ICTA88/S468L (7)).
