The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
The fixed ratio method is the default method of limiting the deduction available under the corporate interest restriction (CIR) rules. For a general overview of the regime, see the Corporate interest restriction ― overview guidance note.
The fixed ratio method restricts the deductibility of interest based on the lower of two figures. These are:
a proportion (30%) of the aggregate tax-EBITDA of the companies in the CIR worldwide group which are subject to UK corporation tax, and

The fixed ratio debt cap looks at the external net group interest expense (sometimes referred to by the acronym NGIE) of the worldwide group based on the consolidated P&L. This is then subject to a series of further complicated adjustments to align the result more closely with UK tax principles, the result of which is the adjusted net group-interest expense (ANGIE). If a group has more external debt in the UK than in the worldwide group overall, then ANGIE may produce a lower cap than the fixed ratio of tax-EBITDA.

multiply tax-EBITDA by 30% ― see the Corporate interest restriction ― calculating tax-interest expense amounts and tax-EBITDA guidance note for how to calculate tax-EBITDA
determine the fixed ratio debt cap ― this is done by calculating the adjusted net group interest expense (ANGIE) which is itself calculated by calculating the net group interest expense (NGIE) for all c
