Reduction peculiar to disposal of shares

7(1)If in the case of a disposal of shares assets which are not business assets are included in the chargeable assets of the company whose shares are disposed of, or, where that company is the holding company of a trading group, in the group’s chargeable assets, and either—

(a)at any time within the period of 12 months before the disposal not less than 25 per cent. of the voting rights exercisable by shareholders of the company in general meeting are exercisable by the transferor, or

(b)the transferor is an individual and, at any time within that period, the company is his family company,

the amount of the held-over gain shall be reduced by multiplying it by the fraction—

Formula - A divided by B

where—

  • A is the market value on the date of the disposal of those chargeable assets of the company or of the group which are business assets, and

  • B is the market value on that date of all the chargeable assets of the company, or as the case may be of the group.

(2)For the purposes of this paragraph—

(a)an asset is a business asset in relation to a company or a group if it is or is an interest in an asset used for the purposes of a trade, profession or vocation carried on by the company, or as the case may be by a member of the group; and

(b)an asset is a chargeable asset in relation to a company or a group at any time if, on a disposal at that time, a gain accruing to the company, or as the case may be to a member of the group, would be a chargeable gain.

(3)Where the shares disposed of are shares of the holding company of a trading group, then for the purposes of this paragraph—

(a)the holding by one member of the group of the ordinary share capital of another member shall not count as a chargeable asset, and

(b)if the whole of the ordinary share capital of a 51 per cent. subsidiary of the holding company is not owned directly or indirectly by that company, the value of the chargeable assets of the subsidiary shall be taken to be reduced by multiplying it by the fraction—

Formula - A divided by B

where—

  • A is the amount of the ordinary share capital of the subsidiary owned directly or indirectly by the holding company, and

  • B is the whole of that share capital.

(4)Expressions used in sub-paragraph (3) above have the same meanings as in section 838 of the Taxes Act.
