The amendments would clarify the definition of schemes involving hybrid entities. Schedule 3 deals with the definition of qualifying schemes. The words in the amendments would be inserted after the reference to corporation tax. The purpose of the definition of a hybrid is to define entities that are characterised by different treatment in different jurisdictions. Because of the widely differing treatment of capital gains or corporations in different jurisdictions, the amendments aim merely to achieve standardisation by defining relevant taxes more tightly for the purposes of the legislation—to include corporation tax only in so far as it applies other than to capital gains.
