17Amendments of Case VII of Schedule D

(1)In section 10(2) of the Finance Act 1962 (which excludes from charge to tax gains accruing on disposals of land more than three years after acquisition and disposals of other assets more than six months after acquisition) for the words " where the disposal occurs more than three years after the acquisition in the case of a disposal of land, or where the disposal occurs more than six months after the acquisition in any other case " there shall be substituted the words where the disposal occurs more than twelve months after the acquisition ",

and section 14 of the Finance Act 1962 (disposal of land effected indirectly) shall cease to have effect.

(2)In section 11(1) of the Finance Act 1962 (exemption of tangible movable property from Case VII) the words " with the exception of tangible movable property " shall cease to have effect, but the charge to tax thereby imposed shall have effect subject to the provisions of this and the next following section.

(3)A mechanically propelled road vehicle constructed or adapted for the carriage of passengers shall not be a chargeable asset except for a vehicle of a type not commonly used as a private vehicle and unsuitable to be so used.

(4)Currency of any description other than sterling shall be chargeable assets except in relation to an acquisition and disposal by an individual for the personal expenditure outside the United Kingdom of himself or his family or dependants (including expenditure on the provision or maintenance of any residence outside the United Kingdom).

(5)A gain shall be exempt from tax chargeable under Case VII if accruing from the acquisition and disposal by any person of a decoration awarded for valour or gallant conduct which he acquired otherwise than for consideration in money or money's worth.

(6)Where in the year 1965-66 or any subsequent year of assessment an individual disposes by way of gift of an asset the market value of which at the time of the gift does not exceed one hundred pounds there shall be exempt from tax chargeable under Case VII any gains accruing to the donor on the disposal but this subsection, taken together with section 27(2) of this Act, shall not apply to gifts made by the same individual in the same year of assessment the total market value of which exceeds one hundred pounds, taking the market value of any gift at the time of the gift.

(7)If the adjusted sale price and adjusted purchase price to be taken into account in computing the amount of a gain accruing from an acquisition and disposal of securities of one of the descriptions in Schedule 9 to this Act are both within the exempt price range specified in that Schedule for those securities a gain accruing on that disposal shall be exempt from tax chargeable under Case VII (and a loss so accruing shall not be an allowable loss) and if the range between those prices overlaps that exempt price range a proportion of a gain so accruing shall be so exempt, which shall be the proportion which the part of the range between those prices which overlaps that exempt price range bears to the whole of the range between those prices (and correspondingly a part of a loss so accruing shall not be an allowable loss). In this and the next following subsection " adjusted sale price " means the amount of the consideration for the disposal and " adjusted purchase price" means the amount of the consideration for the acquisition (that is the acquisition by the person making the disposal), both adjusted, where the nominal amount of the securities being disposed of is not one hundred pounds, to represent a price for a nominal amount of one hundred pounds.

(9)If a claim is made under subsection (1) or subsection (2) of section 33 of this Act—

(b)tax shall not be chargeable under Case VII on a gain accruing to the claimant from the acquisition and disposal of, or of the interest in, the new assets unless the period between the date when the claimant acquired the old assets, or the interest in the old assets, and the date when he disposed of the new assets, or the interest in the new assets, is twelve months or less.
