Amendment of section 737 (special investment schemes) of Principal Act.

50.—Section 737 of the Principal Act is amended in subsection (8) by inserting the following after paragraph (b):

“(bb) Where in a year of assessment (in this section referred to as the ‘year of cessation’) the business of a special investment scheme ceases and an amount, but for that cessation, would under paragraph (b)(iii) be treated as an amount of allowable loss incurred in the next year of assessment, that amount may be deducted from chargeable gains accruing to the special investment scheme in the 3 years of assessment preceding the year of cessation taking chargeable gains accruing in a later year before those accruing in an earlier year, and there shall be made all such amendments of assessments or repayments as may be necessary to give effect to this paragraph.”.
