Santander £100 transfer incentive

In 2011 Santander offered £100 for transfers from accounts with other banks.

There were certain conditions to be met but generally it was offered to both Business and Private accounts.

It was described as a "Cash Back".

Any thoughts on how to treat this in a Sole-Trader situation???

There were no charges so surely not a discount.

It does not appear to be similar to the Halifax "Interest/bonus" scheme.

Is it an "Ex gratia" gift or Capital receipt to come into CGT.

I guess it all depends on how Santander have treated it in their accounts, but they have not responded.

Small beer but it's the principle !!
