(i)  the amount, determined without reference to this subsection, of the dividend deemed under paragraph (2)(a) to have been paid and received, is reduced by the lesser of
(A)  that amount, and
(B)  the total of all amounts of paid-up capital so demonstrated by the CRIC, and
(ii)  in computing the paid-up capital in respect of each class described in this paragraph, at any time after the dividend time, there is to be deducted an amount equal to the portion of the amount determined under subparagraph (i) that can reasonably be considered to relate to that class;

(i)  the amount of the dividend is reduced by the total referred to in this paragraph, and
(ii)  in computing, at any time after the dividend time, the paid-up capital in respect of each cross-border class in respect of the investment, there is to be deducted an amount equal to the paid-up capital in respect of that class immediately after the dividend time, determined without reference to this paragraph;
(c)  where paragraph (b) does not apply and there is at least one cross-border class in respect of the investment,
(i)  the amount, determined without reference to this paragraph, of the dividend is reduced to nil,
(ii)  in computing, at any time after the dividend time, the paid-up capital in respect of a particular cross-border class in respect of the investment, there is to be deducted the amount, if any, that when added to the total of all amounts that are deducted under this paragraph in computing the paid-up capital of other cross-border classes, results in the greatest total reduction because of this paragraph, immediately after the dividend time, of the paid-up capital in respect of shares of cross-border classes that are owned by the parent or another non-resident corporation with which the parent does not, at the dividend time, deal at arm’s length,
(iii)  if the proportion of the shares of a particular class owned, in aggregate, by the parent and non-resident corporations that do not deal at arm’s length with the parent is equal to the proportion so owned of one or more other cross-border classes (in this subparagraph all those classes, together with the particular class, referred to as the “relevant classes”), then the proportion that the reduction under subparagraph (ii) to the paid-up capital in respect of the particular class is of the paid-up capital, determined immediately after the dividend time and without reference to this paragraph, in respect of that class is to be equal to the proportion that the total reduction under subparagraph (ii) to the paid-up capital in respect of all the relevant classes is of the total paid-up capital, determined immediately after the dividend time and without reference to this paragraph, of all the relevant classes, and
(iv)  the total of all amounts each of which is an amount to be deducted under subparagraph (ii) in computing the paid-up capital of a cross-border class is to be equal to the amount by which the dividend is reduced under subparagraph (i); and

(i)  the portion, if any, of the particular amount not applied to reduce the benefit on death under one or more other such exemption test policies, and
(ii)  the amount, immediately before that time, of the benefit on death under the relevant exemption test policy; and
(b)  if the exemption test policy is issued in respect of a coverage under a life insurance policy issued after 2016 and at any time there is a particular reduction in the amount of a benefit on death under the coverage, or the portion, if any, of the fund value benefit referred to in clause (A) of the description of B in subparagraph (4)(a)(iii) in respect of the coverage, the amount of the benefit on death under each exemption test policy issued before that time in respect of the coverage (other than the exemption test policy the date of issue of which is determined under subparagraph (3)(b)(i)) is reduced at that time by an amount equal to the least of
(i)  the particular reduction,
(ii)  the amount, immediately before that time, of the benefit on death under the relevant exemption test policy, and
(iii)  the portion, if any, of the particular reduction not applied to reduce the benefit on death under one or more other such exemption test policies issued on or after the date of issue of the relevant exemption test policy.

(c)  where that time is after 2016,
(i)  the accumulating fund (computed without regard to any amount payable in respect of a policy loan) in respect of the policy at that time exceeds the total of all amounts each of which is

(a)  on the later of
(i)  the date of the third preceding policy anniversary described in paragraph (6)(b) in respect of the policy, and

(b)  if the policy is issued before 2017 and at a particular time after 2016 life insurance – in respect of a life, or two or more lives jointly insured, and in respect of which a particular schedule of premium or cost of insurance rates applies – is converted into another type of life insurance under the policy or is added to the policy, then that insurance is deemed to be a separate life insurance policy issued at the particular time unless
(i)  the insurance is part of a rider deemed by subsection 211(2) of the Act to be a separate life insurance policy issued at the particular time, or
(ii)  in the case of insurance added to the policy,
