(3)For the purposes of this section a guaranteed return is produced from the loan relationship and any one or more of the disposals of futures or options wherever (taking all the transactions together) risks from fluctuations in the underlying subject matter are so eliminated or reduced as to produce a return from the transactions—

(a)the amount of which is not, to any significant extent, attributable (otherwise than incidentally) to any such fluctuations; and

(b)which equates, in substance, to the return on an investment of money at interest.

(4)For the purposes of subsection (3) above the cases where risks from fluctuations in the underlying subject matter are eliminated or reduced shall be deemed to include any case where the main reason, or one of the main reasons, for the choice of that subject matter is—

(2)Where this subsection has effect in relation to an asset representing a loan relationship of a company, the company shall be deemed for the purposes of the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992 and this Chapter—

(a)to have disposed of the asset for the relevant consideration immediately before the time when the loan relationship ceases to be one to which section 93 above applies, and

(b)to have re-acquired it for the relevant consideration immediately after that time.

(3)Any deemed disposal and re-acquisition of an asset under subsection (2) above shall be treated for the purposes of the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992 as a transaction in the case of which—

(b)the asset in question represents both the original shares and the new holding for the purposes of those sections;

(c)the market value of the asset at the time of the transaction is an amount equal to the relevant consideration.

(5)Section 93(5) above shall not apply in the case of a deemed disposal and re-acquisition under subsection (2) above; but the amount of the relevant consideration in such a case shall be treated for the purposes of the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992 as reduced by so much (if any) of the amount mentioned in subsection (4) above as is referable to interest which—

(a)is not paid or payable to the company before the time of the deemed disposal; but

(b)is interest falling to be brought into account under section 93(2) and (3) above as having accrued before that time.

(6)In subsection (4) above “the relevant accounting method”, in relation to an asset representing a loan relationship of a company, means the accounting method which, for the accounting period of that company in which the deemed re-acquisition takes place, is used as respects that asset and the part of that accounting period beginning with the deemed re-acquisition.

(7)This section shall be construed as one with section 93 above..

(3)Subject to subsection (2), the amendment made by this section has effect for accounting periods ending on or after 26th July 2001 in relation to any loan relationship of a company, unless the loan relationship in question is one to which the company ceased to be a party before that date.
