(e)A and B so elect by notice given to an officer of Revenue and Customs not later than 2 years after the date on which A ceased to be UK resident.

(2)If subsection (1) applies, this Part applies as if the proceeds of the realisation of the asset that is treated as occurring under section 859 were reduced to the original cost of the asset recognised for tax purposes.

(3)For the later treatment of the amount of the reduction under subsection (2), see sections 861 and 862.

(2)B must bring into account for tax purposes—

(a)a credit equal to the postponed gain, or

(b)in the case of a part realisation, a credit equal to the appropriate proportion of the postponed gain.

(3)The appropriate proportion is—

where—

MVB is the market value of the asset immediately before the part realisation, and

MVA is the market value of the asset immediately after the part realisation.

(4)Subsection (2) does not apply—

(2)B must bring into account for tax purposes a credit equal to the postponed gain.

(3)Subsection (2) does not apply so far as the postponed gain has already been brought into account under section 861.

(4)Any credit falling to be brought into account under subsection (2) because B ceases to be UK resident must be brought into account immediately before it does so.
