(2)For the purposes of the 1990 Act—

(3)In this paragraph—

  • “the 1990 Act” means the [1990 c. 1.] Capital Allowances Act 1990;

  • “balancing allowance” and “balancing charge” have the same meanings as in section 4 of the 1990 Act;

  • “the property” means the building or structure referred to in sub-paragraph (1); and

  • “relevant interest” has the same meaning as in section 20 of the 1990 Act.

Securities of successor company

6(1)Any share issued by the successor company under Article 57 shall be treated for the purposes of the Corporation Tax Acts as if it had been issued wholly in consideration of a subscription paid to the company of an amount equal to the nominal value of the share.

(2)Any debenture issued by the successor company under Article 57 shall be treated for the purposes of the Corporation Tax Acts as if it had been issued—

(a)wholly in consideration of a loan made to the company of an amount equal to the principal sum payable under the debenture, and

(b)wholly and exclusively for the purposes of the trade carried on by the company.

(3)If any such debenture includes provision for the payment of a sum expressed as interest in respect of a period which falls wholly or partly before the issue of the debenture, any payment made in pursuance of that provision in respect of that period shall be treated for the purposes of the Corporation Tax Acts as if the debenture had been issued at the commencement of that period and, accordingly, as interest on the principal sum payable under the debenture.
