The CIOT commented on the draft legislation published in July 2017 in relation to non-doms and substantial shareholding exemption (SSE); these provisions are now incorporated into Finance (No 2) Bill 2017 published on 8 September 2017. In addition, the draft legislation published in July reflected a change that the CIOT had recommended in relation to hybrid mismatch arrangements. The Finance (No 2) Bill 2017 also reflects a change to SSE rules which addresses the concern we raised.
