197-30(2)  
If the sum of:


(a) the transferred amount; and


(b) any other amounts that were previously transferred to the company ' s *share capital account, from another account of the company, in connection with the demutualisation;

exceeds the total capital contributions amount described in whichever of subsections (3) and (4) applies, subsection (1) does not stop this Division from applying to so much of the transferred amount as equals the lesser of the transferred amount and the amount of the excess.
