(a)as receiving any amount at the end of a period beginning before, and ending during, the trust or company’s first new accounting period, or

(b)as entitled to any allowance of any amount in such a period,

that amount shall be brought into account as a non-trading credit or, as the case may be, a non-trading debit given for the purposes of Chapter 2 of Part 4 of the Finance Act 1996 for the trust or company’s first new accounting period.

(b)the security was not transferred or redeemed on that day, and

(c)there is an amount which, if the trust or company had made a transfer of that security on that day, by selling it for its adjusted closing value,—

(ii)would have been eligible for relief from tax on a claim for the purposes of paragraph 2 of that Schedule,

that amount shall be brought into account as a non-trading credit, or (as the case may be) a non-trading debit, given for the purposes of Chapter 2 of Part 4 of that Act for the accounting period mentioned in sub-paragraph (4) below.

(4)That period is the accounting period in which falls whichever is the earliest of the following, that is to say,—

(a)the first day that falls after the last old day and is a day on which, under the terms on which the security was issued, the holder of the security is entitled to require it to be redeemed;

(b)the day on which the security is redeemed; or

(c)the day on which the trust or company makes a disposal of the security.

(5)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (3)(c), the “adjusted closing value” of a relevant discounted security held by the trust or company on the last old day is the amount which for the purposes of Chapter 2 of Part 4 of the Finance Act 1996 (c. 8) is the opening value, as at the first new day, of the trust or company’s rights and liabilities under the relationship represented by that security.

(6)Sub-paragraph (7) of paragraph 5 of Schedule 15 to the Finance Act 1996 (determination of opening value where accruals basis of accounting is used) applies for the purposes of sub-paragraph (5) as it applies for the purposes of that paragraph, but—
