The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
The vast majority of companies will have loan relationships and so will need to consider how they are taxed under the loan relationship rules. There are also specific provisions dealing with relevant non-lending relationships and other deemed loan relationships.

Therefore, in order to determine the tax treatment of its loan relationships, it is first necessary for a company to establish the purpose of the loan. It will then go on to calculate the relevant debits and credits for the loan relationships.

An amount which is denied relief under these rules is not
