Transferable Tax History - Tracking of multiple holdings of the same asset containing TTH
TTH will relate to a specific TTH election for a specific TTH asset from a specific seller. Therefore, profit tracking for each interest of the same asset purchased separately, must be kept separate and cannot be pooled.
The example below shows how this works:
Company A holds 20% of field X
Company B holds 25% of field X,
Company C holds 15% of field X
the rest is held by four other participators each holding a 10% stake.
Company B purchases Company A’s share of field X with TTH on 31 January 2019. From that date Company B must track the profits from the purchased 20% interest in field X.
On the 31 January 2020, Company B then purchases Company C’s share of field X along with TTH. At this point it will be a requirement for Company B to track profits from both the acquired interests separately but it does not need to track profits from its original 25% interest because it will not have any associated TTH.
When it comes to activation of the TTH for Company B when decommissioning expenses occur in the same field they should be set off against tracked profits pro-rata based on the percentage holding.
In the example above 25/60ths of the decommissioning costs of the company representing the original holding is disregarded for TTH activation purposes.
20/60ths of the decommissioning costs go against the profits tracked for the 20% field interest purchased from Company A.
15/60ths goes against the 15% field interest purchased from Company C.
It is intended this will look as follows if the total decommissioning cost of the company is £10,000 :
|Field interest||TTH transferred||TNTP||Portion of decom costs||TTH activated|
|25%||nil||n/a||25/60 x 10,000 = 4,167||nil|
|20% from Co A||2,500||1,200||20/60 x 10,000 = 3,333||3,333 - 1,200 = 2,133|
|15% from Co C||1,750||750||15/60 x 10,000 = 2,500||2,500 - 750 = 1,750|
