(a)receipts in respect of intangible fixed assets that are recognised in determining the company's profit or loss as they accrue (see section 721),

(b)receipts in respect of royalties, so far as the receipts do not give rise to a credit under section 721 (see section 722),

(c)revaluation of an intangible fixed asset (see section 723),

(d)credits recognised for accounting purposes in respect of negative goodwill (see section 724), and

(e)the reversal of previous accounting debits in respect of an intangible fixed asset (see section 725).

(2)This Chapter does not apply in relation to amounts brought into account in connection with the realisation of an intangible fixed asset within the meaning of Chapter 4 (see section 734).

(3)For the rules about those amounts, see that Chapter.

721Receipts recognised as they accrueU.K.

(1)If in a period of account a gain representing a receipt in respect of an intangible fixed asset is recognised in determining the company's profit or loss, a corresponding credit must be brought into account for tax purposes.

(2)The amount of the credit is the same as the amount of the gain recognised by the company for accounting purposes.

(3)Subsection (2) is subject to any adjustments required by this Part or [F1Part 4 of TIOPA 2010] (provision not at arm's length).

722Receipts in respect of royalties so far as not dealt with under section 721U.K.

(2)The credit must be brought into account in the accounting period in which the receipt is recognised for accounting purposes.

(3)The amount of the credit is equal to so much of the amount of the receipt as does not give rise to a credit under section 721.

723RevaluationU.K.

(1)If in a period of account there is an increase in the accounting value of an intangible fixed asset on a revaluation, a credit must be brought into account for tax purposes.

(2)The amount of the credit is so much of the gain recognised for accounting purposes as, on a just and reasonable apportionment, is attributable to intangible fixed assets.

725Reversal of previous accounting lossU.K.

(1)This section applies if—

(a)in a period of account a gain is recognised in determining the company's profit or loss (“the recognised gain”),

(b)the gain wholly or partly reverses a loss recognised in a previous period of account (“the reversed loss”), and

(c)a debit was brought into account for tax purposes under Chapter 3 (debits in respect of intangible fixed assets) in respect of that loss (“the tax debit”).

(2)A corresponding credit must be brought into account for tax purposes.

(3)The amount of the credit is—
