From 6 April 1998

  • all UK government securities have had FOTRA status, irrespective of the original terms of issue
  • account holders receive interest on registered holdings of FOTRA securities without deduction of tax, unless they have asked for tax to be deducted
  • normal time limit rules apply to all claims, including for FOTRA securities where the terms of issue made no mention of time limit requirements.
