Several anticipated corporate tax measures were removed from the final version of the bill-including measures regarding the corporate interest restriction regime, which were included in the draft finance bill and UK Spring Budget.


The more complex measures were removed with agreement of the government and the opposition, in order to get the bill passed quickly before the UK election in June, 2017.


Some of the significant corporate tax measures that are no longer included in the UK's Finance Bill 2017 include:


  • The new corporate interest restriction regime                                
  • Reforms to the corporation loss carryforward tax rules                    
  • Reforms to the substantial shareholding exemption


The finance bill also excludes the new deemed domicile rules for income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax.
