This type of relevant data-holder is a person who

  • is the registered or inscribed holder of securities
  • receives a payment derived from securities or would be entitled to do so if a payment is made
  • receives a payment treated by the company that makes it as a payment to which section 1033 of Corporation Tax Act 2010 applies (purchase by unquoted trading company of own shares), or

We can only require a relevant data-holder of this type to provide relevant data if the data concerns a matter

  • of whether the relevant data-holder is the beneficial owner (or sole beneficial owner) of the securities or payment in question,
  • if not,

    • details of the beneficial owner (or other beneficial owners), and
    • if those details are not known or if different, details of the person for whom the securities are held or to whom the payment is or may be paid on, and
  • if there is more than one beneficial owner or more than one person of the kind mentioned above, their respective interests in the securities or payment.

A relevant data-holder includes a person who makes a payment derived from securities that has been

  • received from another person, or
  • paid on behalf of another person.
