159Non-residents: roll-over relief

(1)Section 152 shall not apply in the case of a person if the old assets are chargeable assets in relation to him at the time they are disposed of, unless the new assets are chargeable assets in relation to him immediately after the time they are acquired.

(2)Subsection (1) above shall not apply where—

(a)the person acquires the new assets after he has disposed of the old assets, and

(a)the person is a dual resident, and

(b)the new assets are prescribed assets.

(4)For the purposes of this section an asset is at any time a chargeable asset in relation to a person if, were it to be disposed of at that time, any chargeable gains accruing to him on the disposal—

(a)would be gains in respect of which he would be chargeable to capital gains tax under section 10(1), or

(b)would form part of his chargeable profits for corporation tax purposes by virtue of section 10(3).

(5)In this section—

  • “dual resident” means a person who is resident or ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom and falls to be regarded for the purposes of any double taxation relief arrangements as resident in a territory outside the United Kingdom; and

  • “prescribed asset”, in relation to a dual resident, means an asset in respect of which, by virtue of the asset being of a description specified in any double taxation relief arrangements, he falls to be regarded for the purposes of the arrangements as not liable in the United Kingdom to tax on gains accruing to him on a disposal.

(6)In this section—

(a)“the old assets” and “the new assets” have the same meanings as in section 152,

(b)references to disposal of the old assets include references to disposal of an interest in them, and

(c)references to acquisition of the new assets include references to acquisition of an interest in them or to entering into an unconditional contract for the acquisition of them.

(7)Where the acquisition of the new assets took place before 14th March 1989 and the disposal of the old assets took place, or takes place, on or after that date, this section shall not apply if the disposal of the old assets took place, or takes place, within 12 months of the acquisition of the new assets or such longer period as the Board may by notice allow.
