(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order appoints 1st January 1996 as the day on which subsections (3) and (4)(b) of section 105 of the Finance Act 1994 (“section 105”) are to come into force.
Subsection (2) of section 105 inserts subsections (1A) to (1E) (“the new provisions”) in section 605 of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988, enabling the Commissioners of Inland Revenue to make regulations providing for the furnishing of information and documents in connection with retirement benefits schemes. The regulatory power is intended to supersede subsections (1) and (2) of section 605 of that Act (“the old provisions”) which provide for the furnishing of information and documents in connection with such schemes. Subsection (3) of section 105 provides that the old provisions shall cease to have effect.
Subsection (4) of section 105 makes consequential amendments to section 98 of the Taxes Management Act 1970 (c. 9) (penalties for failure to provide information) reflecting the new information powers, and in particular subsection (4)(b) of section 105 removes the reference to the old provisions in the Table in section 98.
Subsection (5) of section 105 provides that subsections (3) and (4)(b) of the section shall come into force on such day as the Treasury may by order appoint.
The day appointed by this Order is also the day on which regulations made under the new provisions are to come into force. The Regulations are entitled “The Retirement Benefits Schemes (Information Powers) Regulations 1995” (S.I. 1995/3103).
