Targeted anti-loss buying rule - definition of arrangements

The term “arrangements” is widely drawn to include any agreement, understanding, scheme, transaction or series of transactions, whether or not legally enforceable.

Whether a transaction forms part of a series of transactions, or a scheme, or arrangement is in general a question of fact, but this conclusion will follow in any case where one transaction would not have taken place without another transaction, or would have taken place on different terms without that other transaction. However, it is not necessary that transactions must depend on each other in this way in order that they form part of a scheme or arrangements.
