Distribution exemption: Exemption for small companies: outline
The conditions to be satisfied
A distribution received by a small company is exempt provided that four conditions are satisfied (CTA09/S931B). The conditions are:
- The paying company is resident in either the UK or in a qualifying territory (see INTM652020), and is not also dual resident.
- The distribution must not be an amount, typically of interest, that is deemed by CTA10/S1000(1) E and F to be a distribution for tax purposes (see INTM655070).
- A deduction is not allowed to any foreign resident in accordance with any foreign tax law in respect of the distribution.
- The distribution is not paid as part of a tax advantage scheme (see INTM652040)
The meaning of “small company” is given by CTA09/S931S (see INTM652060).
