(7) "Individual pension account" has the same meaning in sub-paragraph (6) as it has in paragraph 6A.".
(4) After paragraph 6 there shall be inserted--

"Exclusion of charge in case of individual pension accounts

6A.--(1) There is no charge to tax under this Part of this Schedule on the surrender of the unit if--

(a) immediately before the surrender, the unit is held within an individual pension account,
(b) not all the units under the unit trust scheme are so held at that time, and
(c) a certificate pursuant to sub-paragraph (2) is contained in, or provided with, the relevant monthly tax return.
(2) The certificate must be given by the persons making the relevant monthly tax return and must state--
(a) that at all times in the period to which the return relates the trustees or managers were able to identify which of the units under the scheme were held within individual pension accounts, and
(b) that at no time in that period have the trustees or managers imposed any charge on, or recovered any amount from, an IPA unit holder which included an amount directly or indirectly attributable to tax payable by the trustees under this Part of this Schedule.
(3) In sub-paragraph (2), "IPA unit holder" means--
(a) a person acquiring, or who has acquired, a unit under the unit trust scheme, where the unit is to be held within an individual pension account,

"the relevant monthly tax return", in the case of any surrender, means the notice required by regulations under section 98 of the Finance Act 1986 to be given by the managers (or, failing that, the trustees) under the unit trust scheme to the Commissioners of Inland Revenue containing among other things details of all surrenders in the relevant two-week period;
