An arrangement may comprise more than one step or part.

An arrangement or a series thereof shall be regarded as non-genuine to the extent that they are not put into place for valid commercial reasons which reflect economic reality.

Where arrangements or a series thereof are ignored in accordance with this Rule, the tax liability shall be calculated in accordance with the provisions of the Income Tax Acts.
