Finance Act 2014

New section 870A CTA 2009

3.Subsection (2) inserts new section 870A into Part 8 CTA 2009.

4.Subsection (1) of new section 870A explains when subsection (2) applies. It provides that subsection (2) applies whenever a claim to capital gains rollover relief is made in the circumstances where the proceeds are applied in acquiring an intangible fixed asset within Part 8 CTA 2009.

5.Subsection (2) of new section 870A provides for a reduction in the tax cost of the asset under Part 8 CTA 2009 by the amount of the capital gains rollover relief claim. This ensures that any future debits and credits under Part 8 CTA 2009 reflect the capital gains rollover relief given, preventing relief being given twice. The reduction to tax cost is made on 19 March 2014.

6.Subsection (3) of new section 870A restricts the adjustment in subsection (2) so that the asset cannot have a negative written down value.

7.Subsection (4) of new section 870A ensures that the reduction in subsection (2) is also applied when calculating the tax written-down value of the asset in subsequent accounting periods.
