The following Tax guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note looks at the rules that apply to the taxation of authorised investment funds (AIFs), which is the collective term used for certain authorised and regulated funds which take the form of either open-ended investment companies (OEICs) or authorised unit trusts (AUTs). This Practice Note does not consider the taxation of authorised contractual schemes (ACSs).
For the tax treatment of investors in an AIF (as opposed to the taxation of the fund itself), see Practice Notes:
AIFs—taxation of corporate participants, and
AIFs—taxation of individual participants
For the types of funds that meet the definition of an AIF and an overview of the relevant regulatory framework, see Practice Note: Authorised investment funds (AIFs)—what are they?
For the taxation of Property AIFs (PAIFs), a special category of AIFs, see Practice Note: PAIFs—taxation of the scheme. For the rules applying to another special category of AIFs, known as tax elected funds (TEFs), see Practice Note: AIFs—tax elected funds.
Most of the tax rules applicable to AIFs are contained in the Authorised Investment Funds (Tax) Regulations 2006, SI 2006/964 (AIF (Tax) Regs). In addition, some key rules are contained in the Corporation Tax Act 2010 (CTA 2010) and the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992 (TCGA 1992).
