Share reorganisations: consideration received: general
Because a reorganisation is treated as involving no disposal a special rule is requiredto make sure a shareholder is taxed on any consideration they receive other than the newholding. This is given in TCGA92/S128 (3). The effect of Section 128(3) is that thereceipt of the consideration is treated as a part disposal of the original shares.However, the normal part disposal formula in TCGA92/S42 does not apply. The cost of theoriginal shares must be apportioned in accordance with the rules in TCGA92/S129, seeCG51890+.
