The deduction can only be claimed by a company for a period of three (3) consecutive years of assessment commencing from the year of assessment the application is approved by the Minister.
Where a company that has made an investment in the form of holding of paid-up share capital in respect of ordinary shares and claimed a deduction in respect of that investment receives an amount as consideration for the disposal of such shares, the amount so received by that company shall be added in ascertaining its adjusted income in the basis period for the year of assessment in which that amount was received.
