2  
When a gain or loss of a capital nature accrues to or is incurred by an individual who is a resident of a Contracting State, from the alienation of property situated in the JPDA or of shares or comparable interests in a company, the assets of which consist (directly or indirectly, including for example through a chain of companies), wholly or mainly of property situated in the JPDA, the amount of the gain or loss may, for the purposes of the law of a Contracting State, be an amount equivalent to the reduction percentage of the amount that would be the gain or loss but for this paragraph.

Notwithstanding paragraph 2, the Contracting State of which the individual is a resident may tax that gain or recognise that loss of a capital nature without such reduction. In such a case, that Contracting State shall provide a tax offset against the tax payable on that gain by the individual in that other Contracting State.
