(c)a company obtains a relevant tax advantage as a result of the disposal.

(5)In subsection (4) the reference to obtaining a relevant tax advantage includes obtaining a relevant tax advantage by virtue of any provisions of double taxation arrangements, but only in a case where the relevant tax advantage is contrary to the object and purpose of the provisions of the double taxation arrangements (and subsection (6) has effect accordingly, regardless of anything in section 6(1) of TIOPA 2010).

(6)The tax advantage is to be counteracted by means of adjustments.

(b)in respect of amounts treated as profits of a trade by virtue of Part 8ZB of CTA 2010.

(9)For the purposes of this section, where any property is disposed of under a contract, the time at which the disposal is made is the time the contract is made (and not, if different, the time at which the property is conveyed or transferred).

(10)In subsection (9) “contract” includes a conditional contract.

(11)In this section—

  • “arrangement” includes any scheme, agreement or understanding (whether or not legally enforceable);

  • “disposal” is to be interpreted in accordance with section 356OQ of CTA 2010;

  • “relevant asset” means land, or property deriving the whole or part of its value from land;

  • “tax advantage” has the meaning given by section 1139 of CTA 2010.

(a)A is connected with B by virtue of any of subsections (5) to (7) of section 1122 of CTA 2010 (read in accordance with section 1123 of that Act), or

(b)A is related to B.

(13)In subsection (12) “related to” is to be interpreted in accordance with section 356OT of CTA 2010.

(a)in a case within subsection (8)(a), means the time of the disposal mentioned in subsection (4)(a).

(b)in a case within subsection (8)(b), means any time in the period beginning when the activities of the project began and ending 6 months after the disposal mentioned in section 356OB(1) or 356OD(1) of CTA 2010.
