Definitions

A ‘CIS-based close company’ is a company which is only a close company because of the attribution under CTA10/S449 and CTA10/S448 of the rights and powers of partners in a CIS limited partnership to another of the partners.

A ‘CIS limited partnership’ is a limited partnership which is a collective investment scheme or which would be a collective investment scheme if it were not a body corporate. CFM35900 has more on CIS limited partnerships.

A ‘collective investment scheme’ means a collective investment scheme within the meaning of FSMA2000/S235. See also the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Collective Investment Schemes) Order 2001 (S.I. 2001/1062) as amended for arrangements which do not amount to a collective investment scheme.

‘Non-qualifying territory’ has the meaning given by TIOPA2010/S173.

‘Resident’ has the meaning given by TIOPA2010/S167(5).

‘Small or medium-sized enterprise’ has the meaning given by TIOPA2010/S172. See INTM432112 for further guidance.
