(9) The stamp duty, interest and any penalty payable under this section shall not be allowed as a deduction for the purposes of the computation of any tax or duty payable by the authorised insurer which is under the care and management of the Commissioners.

(10) Where an insured person, being the individual referred to in the definition of “insured person”, shows to the satisfaction of an authorised insurer (in this subsection referred to as the “second authorised insurer”) that another authorised insurer (in this subsection referred to as the “first authorised insurer”) with whom that individual renewed, or entered into, a relevant contract during an accounting period, was required to include that insured person in a statement to be delivered pursuant to [20]>subsection (2)<[20][20]>subsection (2) [28]>or (2A)<[28]<[20] to the Commissioners in respect of the same accounting period, then the second authorised insurer, with whom the individual entered into a later relevant contract during the same accounting period, may exclude such insured person from the statement to be delivered pursuant to [20]>subsection (2)<[20][20]>subsection (2) [28]>or (2A)<[28]<[20] to the Commissioners by the second authorised insurer in respect of the same accounting period.

(11) Where an insured person, being an insured person under a relevant contract who is not the individual referred to in the definition of “insured person” in relation to the relevant contract concerned, shows to the satisfaction of an authorised insurer (in this subsection referred to as the “second authorised insurer”) that another authorised insurer (in this subsection referred to as the “first authorised insurer”) with whom that person was an insured person named on a relevant contract renewed, or entered into, by an individual referred to in the definition of “insured person” during an accounting period, was required to include that insured person in a statement to be delivered pursuant to [20]>subsection (2)<[20][20]>subsection (2) [28]>or (2A)<[28]<[20] to the Commissioners for the same accounting period, then the second authorised insurer, with whom the insured person entered into a relevant contract during the same accounting period, may exclude such insured person from the statement to be delivered pursuant to [20]>subsection (2)<[20][20]>subsection (2) [28]>or (2A)<[28]<[20] to the Commissioners by the second authorised insurer in respect of the same accounting period.

(b) the relevant contract is for a period of more than 12 months,

then, without prejudice to the treatment to be accorded to the relevant contract and the initial accounting period by [20]>subsection (2)<[20][20]>subsection (2)[28]>or (2A)<[28]<[20], the relevant contract shall be deemed, for the purposes of this section, to be renewed during—

[21]>

(i) the accounting period which immediately succeeds the initial accounting period if the second 12 months, or lesser period, of the relevant contract commences during such immediately succeeding accounting period, and

(ii) each further accounting period where any subsequent 12 months, or lesser period, of the relevant contract commences during such further accounting period.
