This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Section 2

2(1)Section 2 (persons and gains chargeable to capital gains tax, and allowable losses) is amended as follows.

(2)In subsection (5) (computation of tax in cases where gains treated as accruing to settlor etc in respect of trust gains), for the word “and” at the end of paragraph (a) substitute—

(aa)every amount which is treated by virtue of sections 77 and 86 as an amount of chargeable gains accruing to the person in question for that year, reduced as follows—

(i)first, by making the deductions for which subsection (2) provides in respect of any allowable losses accruing to that person;

(ii)then, where taper relief would be deductible by the trustees of the settlement in question but for section 77(1)(b)(i) or 86(1)(e)(ii), by applying reductions in respect of taper relief under section 2A at the rates that would be applicable in the case of the trustees;

and.

(3)In paragraph (b) of that subsection, omit “77, 86,”.

(4)After that subsection insert—

(6)Allowable losses must (notwithstanding section 2A(6)) be deducted under paragraph (a)(i) of subsection (5) above before any may be deducted under paragraph (aa)(i) of that subsection.

(7)Where in any year of assessment—

(a)there are amounts treated as accruing to a person by virtue of section 77 or 86,

(b)two or more of those amounts, or elements of them—

(i)relate to different settlements, and

(ii)attract taper relief (by virtue of subsection (5)(aa)(ii) above) at the same rate, or are not eligible for taper relief, and

(c)losses are deductible from the amounts or elements mentioned in paragraph (b) above (“the equal-tapered amounts”) but are not enough to exhaust them all,

the deduction applicable to each of the equal-tapered amounts shall be the appropriate proportion of the aggregate of those losses.

The “appropriate proportion” is that given by dividing the equal-tapered amount in question by the total of the equal-tapered amounts.

(8)The references to section 86 in subsection (5)(aa) above (in the opening words) and subsection (7)(a) above include references to that section read with section 10A..
