Payment Protection Insurance and Insurance Premium Tax Insurance Premium tax (IPT) is a tax which is levied on insurance products sold in the UK. On 4 January 2011 the standard rate of IPT increased from 5% to 6%. Capital One Payment Protection Insurance policy holders are unaffected by this change, as the cost of this increase will be borne by us. Should the rate of IPT change in the future we reserve the right to charge you the associated cost. If this occurs and we decide to pass on the increase you will be made aware of the change in premium. The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and Insurance The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) covers financial services firms which are regulated by the FCA. This means that the FSCS may pay compensation to consumers if a regulated business under the scheme is unable, or likely to be unable, to meet its obligations to you. This depends on the type of insurance and the circumstances of the claim. Further information about the compensation scheme arrangements is available on the FSCS website opens in a new window .

The UK Business's Tax Strategy is adopted by the UK Board under guidance from Capital One's Global Tax Department and has full regard to the UK's risk appetite. In particular, Capital One UK will: Comply with all relevant tax laws and disclosure requirements; Deal professionally and transparently with all tax authorities; Only undertake tax planning based on the economic and commercial activities of the business; Maintain accounting systems and controls as required to support the tax compliance obligations. Approach to tax risk management and governance Capital One UK is subject to all policies and procedures of the Global Corporation. This is equally true in the area of taxation. Monthly updates are provided by Global Tax to the UK CFO who is a board member of the UK business. Procedures require that major changes to operations or activities are signed off by Global Tax through UK Finance representations. Attitude to Tax Planning Tax planning is undertaken having regard to the commercial and economic activity of the business. Capital One UK does not seek to structure transactions in ways that give results inconsistent with the underlying economic reality. Capital One UK undertakes tax planning that is both within the letter and the spirit of tax law. Tax matters are handled by Global Tax's UK in-house tax team which is staffed by suitably qualified and experienced tax professionals. Occasionally and where appropriate, external technical advice is sought to challenge or to support technical interpretations of transactions. This enables business decisions to be taken with full knowledge of likely tax results. Level of Risk The Company at all times seeks to limit the tax complexity of the business. Capital One UK works to maintain its low risk status as assessed by HMRC. Approach to dealing with HMRC Capital One UK engages openly with HMRC based on mutual trust and respect. The Company raises all materially uncertain positions on a real-time basis to limit the uncertainty and minimize tax risk.
