23Provisions as to computation of profits and capital

(1)For the purposes of the armament profits duty, the profits arising from a business in any year constituting or comprised in the standard period or arising in any chargeable accounting period shall be separately computed, and shall be so computed on the principles on which the profits arising therefrom are computed for the purposes of income tax under Case I of Schedule D, as adapted in accordance with the provisions of Part I of the Ninth Schedule to this Act, and the average amount of the capital employed in a business in any such year or period shall be computed in accordance with Part II of that Schedule.
