Loan administration services are standard rated as debt collection because the loan administrator did not also advance the loans according to the FTT in Target Group Ltd. A consultation begins on the reform of limited partnership law to limit the risk of misuse of limited partnerships. In Investec, the UT concludes that sums paid by way of capital contributions to the leasing partnerships should be disallowed as not wholly and exclusively for the purposes of Investec’s trade. The Court of Appeal concludes that the FTT made errors of law which the UT wrongly found to be immaterial and remits the Newey (t/a Ocean Finance) case to the FTT to direct itself correctly in law.
