star this property answer text <p>The Government is unable to comment on the tax affairs of individual companies.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has always been clear that companies must pay the right amount of tax on their UK activities. HM Revenue and Customs works to ensure that all taxpayers comply with their obligations under the UK’s tax code and pay the right amount of tax. The UK levies corporation tax on the basis of the profits generated by the economic activity and assets held in the UK, regardless of the location of the company’s legal structure. The Government has taken action – both internationally and domestically – to align the taxation of profits with economic activity.</p><p> </p><p>In line with this objective, the Government confirmed at Autumn Statement 2016 that the UK will proceed with a measure to cap the amount of tax relief that large businesses can claim for their interest expense at 30% of UK earnings, effective from 1 April 2017. The new corporate interest restriction rules are consistent with the internationally agreed OECD recommendations from the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project. The rules will include provisions to protect investment in infrastructure that have a public benefit and do not give rise to a BEPS risk.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Thames Tideway Tunnel is not a Government project and would therefore not normally be subject to IPA oversight and monitoring. However, given the scale and nature of the project, it was decided that IPA would provide oversight and assurance for the set-up of the project.</p><p>The IPA confirmed that the conditions were right to return the project to DEFRA assurance through a Project Assessment Review in May 2016 and formally returned responsibility in 2017. This was only done once IPA were content that DEFRA had strong and appropriate assurance in place to ensure HMG’s interests were protected, and was documented through an exchange of letters between the CEO of the IPA and the DEFRA Accounting Officer.</p><p>Although no longer on the Government major projects portfolio, DEFRA and IPA continue to work closely together on the project.</p><p> </p> more like this
