106. Avoidance of tax by transactions in securities.- (1) Where the owner of any securities sells or transfers those securities and buys them back or reacquires them, or buys or acquires similar securities, and the result of the transactions is that any interest becoming payable in respect of the original securities sold or transferred by the owner is not receivable by the owner, the interest payable as aforesaid shall be deemed, for all purposes of this Ordinance, to be the income of such owner and not of any other person, whether the interest payable as aforesaid would or would not have been chargeable to tax apart from the provisions of this sub-section.
(2) Where any person has had for any period during an income year any beneficial interest in any securities and the result of any transactions within that year relating to such securities or the income thereof is that no income is received by him, or that the income received by him is less than the sum which the income would have amounted to had the income from such securities accrued from day to day, and been apportioned to the said period, then the income from such securities for the said period shall be deemed to be the income of such person.
(3) Where, any person carrying on a business which consists wholly or partly in dealing in securities buys or acquires any securities from any other person and either sells back or re-transfers those securities, or sells or transfers similar securities, to such other person, and the result of the transactions is that the interest becoming payable in respect of the securities bought or acquired by him is receivable by him but is not deemed to be his income by reason of the provisions of sub-section (1), no account shall be taken of the transactions in computing for any of the purposes of this Ordinance any income arising from, or loss sustained, in the business.
