{#IDAUJ1OH}CTA09/S981 and TCGA92/S143

CTA09/S981 and section 143 TCGA 1992 provide, broadly, that transactions in financial futures and options will be treated as capital in nature unless they are regarded as being on revenue account as profits or losses of a trade. Whether such a transaction is a trading transaction or on capital account is a question of fact and degree which can only be determined by reference to all of the facts and circumstances of a particular case.
