Extra-Statutory Concession (ESC) C16 was a concession granted by HM Revenue & Customs, that allowed the directors of a company to effectively wind up a solvent company themselves without appointing a liquidator and pass the surplus funds to the shareholders as capital receipts rather than dividends.

Article 16 of the Order inserts Sections 1030A and 1030B into the Corporation Tax Act 2010.
