Section 117: Amount of receipt if old animal slaughtered under disease control order
480.This section limits the amount of the receipt taxed under section 116 if the old animal is slaughtered under a disease control order. It is based on paragraph 3(6) of Schedule 5 to ICTA.
481.Paragraph 3(6) of Schedule 5 to ICTA restricts the amount of the receipt to “the amount allowable as a deduction”. It is not immediately clear what this amount is. This section makes clear that it is the amount allowable as a deduction in respect of the new animal. This is called “the equivalent amount for the new animal”.
482.Subsections (4) and (5) define “the equivalent amount for the new animal”. Subsection (4) deals with the case in which the replacement animal comes from the farmer’s trading stock. Subsection (5) deals with all other cases.
