(1)The accounting profit or loss, and the tax adjustments, are to be allocated between the two separate businesses in accordance with an acceptable commercial method adopted by the company.

(2)A method is an “acceptable commercial method” if it secures that the accounting profit or loss, and the tax adjustments, are allocated to the two separate businesses in a way that fairly represents the contribution made by those businesses to the accounting profit or loss as adjusted to take into account the tax adjustments.

(3)The Treasury may make regulations for the purposes of this section—

(a)prescribing cases in which a method is, or is not, to be regarded as an acceptable commercial method, and
