1. Section 13, ICTA 1988 (small companies’ relief) and section 13AA, ICTA 1988 (corporation tax starting rate) contains rules which apply when one company is associated with one or more other companies. Broadly speaking, one company is associated with another if one of the two has control of the other, or both are under the control of the same person or persons. The rules about control are contained in sections 416 and 417, ICTA 1988. The provisions of this concession relate to the application of those rules only for the purpose of sections 13 and 13AA.
