This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Derivative and relevant contracts of person

53(1)For the purposes of this Schedule references to a relevant contract of a person are references to a relevant contract entered into or acquired by a person; and references to a person’s being party to a relevant contract shall be construed accordingly.

(2)For the purposes of sub-paragraph (1), a relevant contract is acquired by a person if that person becomes entitled to the rights, and subject to the liabilities, under the relevant contract whether by assignment or otherwise.

(3)Where—

(a)a company ceases to be party to a derivative contract in an accounting period (the “cessation period”),

(b)profits or losses arise to the company from the derivative contract or a related transaction in the cessation period, and

(c)the credits or debits brought into account for the purposes of this Schedule for the cessation period do not include credits or debits which represent the whole of those profits or losses,

credits or debits in respect of so much of those profits or losses as are not represented by credits or debits brought into account for the cessation period shall continue to be brought into account under this Schedule over one or more subsequent accounting periods (“post-cessation periods”) as in the case of a derivative contract to which the company is party in those periods and sub-paragraphs (4) and (5) shall apply.

(4)In any case falling within sub-paragraph (3), any question—

(a)whether, in a post-cessation period, the company is, or is to any extent, party to the contract for the purposes of a trade carried on by it, or

(b)whether, in a post-cessation period, the contract is to any extent referable to a particular business, or a particular class, category or description of business, carried on by the company,

shall be determined by reference to the circumstances immediately before the company ceased to be party to the contract instead of the circumstances in the post-cessation period.

(5)In any case falling within sub-paragraph (3), any question—

(a)whether the contract has to any extent a particular purpose in a post-cessation period, or

(b)whether there is a connection between the company and any other person for a post-cessation period,

shall be determined by reference to the circumstances in the cessation period instead of the circumstances in the post-cessation period.

(6)For the purposes of the Corporation Tax Acts references to a person’s derivative contracts and to a person’s being party to a derivative contract shall be construed accordingly.
