Loan relationships rules apply to holdings by companies

Where a company holds units in an unauthorised unit trust and that unauthorised unit trust fails the non-qualifying investments test at any time in the company's accounting period, then the company's unit holdings are taxed as if they were rights under a creditor relationship of the company unit holder. Such holdings are therefore within the legislation on loan relationships. See the Corporate Finance Manual (CFM3000).
