The consequences set out in subsection (3) occur if:


(a) either:

(ii) subsection 160ZZO(1AA) applies to one or more disposals of assets (each of which is also a 160ZZO CGT asset ) acquired on or after that date;
or both; and


(b) the disposals of the 160ZZO CGT assets are distributions in the course of the liquidation of the transferee mentioned in section 160ZZO , but they are not distributions to which subsection 160ZL(1) applies; and


(c) the market value of the distributed 160ZZO CGT assets constitutes the whole or part of the consideration for the cancellation, in the course of the liquidation, of all of the shares (the transferee's total shares ) beneficially owned in the transferor mentioned in section 160ZZO by the transferee; and


(d) throughout the period from the first or only disposal of a 160ZZO CGT asset until the cancellation of the shares, the transferee beneficially owned all of the shares in the transferor; and


(e) one or more shares (the transferee's CGT shares ) that were cancelled were acquired by the transferee on or after 20 September 1985; and


(f) either:


(i) there is an overall notional gain on distributions to the transferee of the 160ZZO CGT assets in the course of the liquidation and an overall actual gain on the cancellation of the transferee's CGT shares in the course of the liquidation; or

(ii) there is an overall notional loss on distributions to the transferee of the 160ZZO CGT assets in the course of the liquidation and an overall actual loss on the cancellation of the transferee's CGT shares in the course of the liquidation.
