Futures: artificial transactions in futures/options: consequential adjustments
The ITTOIA05 income rules, see CG56200, generally apply in respect of disposals of futures and options following the TCGA pattern given by Sections 143 to 144A TCGA92. However, where futures run to delivery or options are exercised, an income charge may arise when there is no corresponding CG disposal. Sections 148B and 148C modify the capital gains computations on a disposal of the asset acquired by reason of the option or future to prevent the same amounts being taken into account for both income and capital gains.
