Several government amendments were considered (and passed) as part of the Public Bill Committee stage, including:

  • Tax relief measures concerning loan relationships and derivative contracts (tax relief for companies in financial distress with respect to the release from and/or substantial modifications to loan relationships) 
  • Relief for finance costs related to residential property businesses (amendments clarifying that companies are outside the scope of these new rules, so that  non-resident landlords investing in UK residential property via a partnership will not be subject to these restrictions)
