Finance Act 2009


1.Section 31 and Schedule 12 provide groups of companies with a simpler procedure to match the chargeable gains or allowable losses that arise on the disposal of chargeable assets when an election is made, removing the need to actually transfer ownership of assets within a group. Currently when an election is made, an asset is deemed to have been transferred from one group company to another before a disposal outside the group. However, an election cannot currently be made in all the circumstances in which gains or losses can arise; for example where there is no disposal to a third party.
