“(c) Where a person, in this subsection referred to as an ‘owner’—

(i) supplies financial services of the kind specified in subparagraph (i)(e) of the First Schedule in respect of a supply of goods within the meaning of paragraph (b) of subsection (1), being goods which are of such a kind or were used in such circumstances that no part of the tax, if any, chargeable on that supply of those goods was deductible by the person to whom that supply was made, and
