Beyond these general warning principles, it appears that the courts have failed to clearly or consistently delineate contracts that are capital assets and those that constitute a right to income. Ultimately, it is the nature of what is transferred: (i) an opportunity to obtain income by providing a particular service under a contract, or (ii) partly from a business or business that goes beyond the contracts themselves? If the former, the resulting benefit should be a decent income; if this is the case, at least some of the profit should be considered a capital gain. On Form 8594, a Section 1060 asset acquisition statement filed with its 2003 tax return, the taxpayer reported the values of the assets sold in the same manner as the parties had assigned them in the acquisition agreement. Most of the purchase price was allocated to what the taxpayer recorded as intangible assets (including contracts) and relates to the value/goodwill that must be imposed as a capital gain. If a property is not described in this way, the profit made at the time of its sale is generally considered a normal income. Indeed, certain real estate used in a business is expressly excluded from the treatment of capital gains, including inventory and property that the taxpayer holds primarily for sale to clients in the normal framework of the activity or the implant (“inventory”). The Court considered whether the seller had sold an asset in the type of goodie or the rights to future income in the form of service contracts. The Court found that it was possible that the seller had sold a combination of the two. He reviewed the Bisbee decision (see above) and cited this part of the opinion, in which he explained that certain parts of the transferred contractual rights may be financial assets. It found that the economic conditions of the actual transaction were such as to enable the purchaser to acquire, with the rights to use the existing credits, the possibility of following the seller with regard to the service of future loans. This is a “privileged position,” the Tribunal said, which is a commercial advantage.

The fact that future loans were not mentioned in the contract does not prevent a portion of the consideration paid for this opportunity. In addition to acquiring the opportunity to serve future credits, the buyer has also acquired a closely related asset: the value of the seller as a current business. The salesperson`s staff was expected and continue to perform the same tasks and services as for the seller. The fact that the sales contract could not (and) could not say that the seller`s employees were related to the buyer did not affect the likelihood that they would enter the buyer`s operation – it was also part of the value purchased.
