Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

9(1)If a participator in an oil field so elects by notice in writing given to the Board before 1st January 1976 or not later than three months after the end of the earliest chargeable period in which he is a participator in that field, the following provisions of this paragraph shall apply in his case as regards that field; and an election under this sub-paragraph shall be irrevocable.

(2)Where, in computing the assessable profit or allowable loss accruing to the participator in the first or any subsequent chargeable period from the field, any amount attributable to expenditure qualifying for supplement under paragraph (b)(ii) or (c)(ii) of section 2(9) of this Act by virtue of section 3(5) of this Act would, apart from the election, fall to be taken into account under paragraph (b) or (c) of the said section 2(9), then only one-tenth of that amount shall be so taken into account for that period, and, subject to sub-paragraph (3) below, one-tenth of that amount shall be so taken into account in computing the assessable profit or allowable loss accruing to the participator in each of the nine following chargeable periods.

(3)If the winning of oil from the field permanently ceases at a time before the end of the last of those nine chargeable periods, so much of the amount mentioned in sub-paragraph (2) above as at that time has not been taken into account as there mentioned for any chargeable period shall be so taken into account in computing the assessable profit or allowable loss accruing to the participator in the chargeable period in which that time falls.
