(2)To the extent that, in any accounting period, a derivative contract of a company is one to which the company is party for the purposes of a trade carried on by it, the credits and debits given in respect of that contract for that period shall be treated (according to whether they are credits or debits) either—

(3)Where for any accounting period there are, in respect of the derivative contracts of a company, credits and debits that are not brought into account under sub-paragraph (2), they shall be brought into account for that accounting period as if they were non-trading credits or non-trading debits falling to be brought into account for the purposes of Chapter 2 of Part 4 of the Finance Act 1996 (c. 8) in respect of loan relationships of the company.

(4)Sub-paragraph (2), so far as it provides for any amount to be deductible as mentioned in paragraph (b) of that sub-paragraph, shall have effect notwithstanding anything in section 74 of the Taxes Act 1988 (allowable deductions).
