Controlled Foreign Companies: The CFC Charge Gateway Chapter 9 - Exemptions for profits from Qualifying Loan Relationships: Full Exemption - Qualifying Resources: Claims for Qualifying Resources
Claims for Qualifying Resources
TIOPA10/Part 9A/S371IB sets out the rules to be applied to establish the extent to which profits from a qualifying loan relationship (“QLR” - INTM217000) will be fully exempt where it is funded out of qualifying resources. A claim can be made for up to 100% of profits of a QLR, although a claim for less than 75% exemption will not arise in practice, as a claim for partial exemption under section 371ID will be more beneficial. If the claim establishes that X% of the resources used to fund a QLR are qualifying resources then X% of the non-trading finance profits are fully exempt.
It is not possible to make a claim under section 371IB for full exemption in respect of part of a QLR and a claim under section 371ID for 75% exemption in respect of the remainder. Any profits of a QLR not exempted by way of a claim under section 371IB will be apportionable in full unless the matched interest rule in section 371IE applies to exempt part or all of the balance.
Section 371IB places the burden of proof upon the claimant company, which must demonstrate that at least X% of the resources used to fund the QLR throughout the accounting period are qualifying resources. See INTM218850 for more detail about the nature of evidence required.
The claimant must determine the sources of funding for the QLR as it stands in the accounting period. This may need historical investigation and may require direct or indirect funding sources to be considered.
