As announced in July of last year, the 2020 Budget introduces a new deferred payment plan option for Corporation Tax charged on profits or gains arising from certain transactions between UK companies and EEA companies of the same group of companies. The new rules will allow the deferral of CT over a period of up to 5 years, and has effect from 11 July 2019 for transactions occurring in accounting periods ending on or after 10 October 2018.  The new measures follow the FTT decision in Gallaher to the effect that the absence of a deferral option was in breach of EU law and the option could not be read into the legislation.
