but, where in its balance sheet capital reserves, revenue reserves or provisions (other than provisions for depreciation, renewals or diminution in value of assets) are not stated separately, any heading stating an amount arrived at after taking into account such a reserve or provision shall be so framed or marked as to indicate that fact, and its profit and loss account shall indicate by appropriate words the manner in which the amount stated for the company's profit or loss has been arrived at.

(2)The accounts of a banking or discount company shall not be deemed, by reason only of the fact that they do not comply with any requirements of the said Part from which the company is exempt by virtue of this paragraph, not to give the true and fair view required by this Act.

(3)In this paragraph the expression " banking or discount company" means any company which satisfies the Board of Trade that it ought to be treated for the purposes of this Schedule as a banking company or as a discount company.
