It is not possible to identify which companies qualify for the Tonnage Tax scheme from the information held by the department.

For example, information on whether a company operates ships which are strategically and commercially managed in the UK, which is a requirement to be a qualifying company for the Tonnage Tax scheme, is not held for companies not currently part of the scheme.

Does this answer the above question?
