This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

7(1)Whenever any assessment to income tax for any year of assessment has been made on any person by virtue of section fifty-one of this Act which is based wholly or partly on the profits of a trade or business carried on by him, an assessment to the profits tax may, subject to sub-paragraph (2) of this paragraph, be made on him for any chargeable accounting period ending after the beginning of the period during which those profits arose.
