(b)which is not prevented from being a corporate strip by sub-paragraph (9) below.

(2)For the purposes of this Schedule a person converts an interest-bearing corporate security into corporate strips of the security if he has an interest-bearing corporate security (“the converted corporate security”) but—

(a)as a result of any scheme or arrangements, he comes to have two or more separate assets in place of the converted corporate security,

(b)each of those separate assets satisfies condition A,

(c)those separate assets, taken together, satisfy condition B, and

(d)at least one of those separate assets is not prevented from being a corporate strip by sub-paragraph (9) below,

and related expressions shall be construed accordingly.

(3)Condition A is that the asset—

(a)represents the right to, or

(b)secures,

one or more stripped payments.

(4)For the purposes of this paragraph, a “stripped payment” is—

(a)the payment of, or

(b)a payment corresponding to,

the whole or a part of one or more payments (whether of interest or principal) remaining to be made under the converted corporate security.

(5)Condition B is that the assets, taken together,—

(a)represent the right to, or

(b)secure,

every payment (whether of interest or principal) remaining to be made under the converted corporate security (or payments corresponding to every such payment).

(6)Where a person—

(a)has an interest-bearing corporate security, but

(b)sells or transfers the right to one or more payments remaining to be made under it (so that, as a result, there are two or more separate assets which, taken together, satisfy condition B),

this Schedule has effect as if, as a result of a scheme or arrangements, the person had come to have the separate assets in place of the security immediately before the sale or transfer.

(7)For the purposes of this Schedule, sub-paragraphs (2) to (6) above also have effect in relation to each of the separate assets mentioned in sub-paragraph (2) above as if it were itself an interest-bearing corporate security (if that is not in fact the case).

(a)any reference in this Schedule to converting an interest-bearing corporate security into corporate strips of the security shall be construed accordingly, and

(a)represents the right to, or

(b)secures,

payments of, or corresponding to, a part of every payment remaining to be made under an interest-bearing corporate security or a corporate strip.

(10)After a balance has been struck for a dividend on an interest-bearing corporate security, any payment to be made in respect of that dividend shall, at times falling after that balance has been struck, be treated for the purposes of this paragraph as not being a payment remaining to be made under the security.

(5)Where corporate strips are consolidated into a single security—

(a)by being exchanged by any person for that security, or

each of the corporate strips shall be deemed to have been redeemed, at the time of the exchange or other conversion, by the payment to that person of an amount equal to its market value.

(6)Sub-paragraphs (2) to (5) above have effect for the purposes of this Schedule.

(7)For the purposes of this paragraph, the acquisition cost of the converted corporate security is the amount paid in respect of his acquisition of the security by the person who has it immediately before the conversion (no account being taken of any costs incurred in connection with that acquisition).
