EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Part 4 of the Finance Act 2006 sets out the structure of the Real Estate Investment Trusts regime and the types of activity and business that qualify for REIT status. Part 1 of Schedule 16 to that Act excludes certain classes of business from qualifying.

Regulation 2 replaces paragraph 3 of Schedule 16 to the Finance Act 2006, so that property letting is excluded from the regime where it would fall in accordance with generally accepted accounting practice to be described as owner-occupied.

A full and final Impact Assessment has not been produced for this instrument as a negligible impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
