(1)If the disposal is a gift, the relievable amount is given by the formula—

where—

V is the value of the net benefit to the charity at, or immediately after, the time when the disposal is made (whichever is less),

IC is the amount of the incidental costs of making the disposal to the company making it, and

B is the total value of any benefits received in consequence of making the disposal by the company making the disposal or a person connected with the company.

(2)If the disposal is at an undervalue, the relievable amount is given by the formula—

where—

E is the amount (if any) by which V (as defined in subsection (1)) exceeds the amount or value of the consideration for the disposal,

C is given by subsection (4), and

B is as defined in subsection (1).

(3)But if the amount given by the formula in subsection (1) or (2) is a negative amount, the relievable amount is nil.

(4)C is found as follows.

  • Step 1

    Calculate the consideration for which the disposal is treated as made for the purposes of TCGA 1992 as a result of section 257(2)(a) of that Act (in case of disposal to charity etc, consideration to be such that no gain or loss accrues).

  • Step 2

    Find the excess (if any) of the amount calculated at step 1 over the amount or value of the consideration for the disposal.

If there is such an excess, C is the amount of that excess or, if less, the amount of the incidental costs of making the disposal to the company making it.

If there is no such excess, C is nil.

(5)This section needs to be read with—

(a)section 207 (incidental costs of making disposal),

(b)section 208 (consideration), and

(c)sections 209 to 212 (value of net benefit to charity).

207Incidental costs of making disposalE+W+S+N.I.

References in section 206 to the incidental costs of making the disposal to the company making it are to—

(a)fees, commission or remuneration paid for the professional services of a surveyor, valuer, auctioneer, accountant, agent or legal adviser which are wholly and exclusively incurred by the company for the purposes of the disposal,

(b)costs of transfer or conveyance wholly and exclusively incurred by the company for the purposes of the disposal,

(c)costs of advertising to find a buyer, and

(d)costs reasonably incurred in making any valuation or apportionment required for the purposes of this Chapter.

208ConsiderationE+W+S+N.I.

If the disposal is at an undervalue, section 48 of TCGA 1992 (consideration due after time of disposal) applies in relation to the calculation of the relievable amount as it applies in relation to the calculation of a gain.
