    (2) Subject to subsection (2.1), if at a particular time a registrant that is a public sector body (other than a financial institution) makes a particular taxable supply of real property by way of sale (other than a supply that is deemed under subsection 200(2) or 206(5) to have been made) and, immediately before the time tax becomes payable in respect of the particular taxable supply, the property was not used by the registrant primarily in commercial activities of the registrant, except where subsection (1) applies, the registrant may, despite section 170 and Subdivision D, claim an input tax credit for the reporting period in which tax in respect of the particular taxable supply became payable or is deemed to have been collected, as the case may be, equal to the lesser of

    • (a) the basic tax content of the property at the particular time; and

    • (b) the tax that is or would, but for section 167, be payable in respect of the particular taxable supply.

    • (a) the basic tax content of the property at the particular time, and

    • (b) the amount determined by the formula

      (A/B) × C

      where

      A
      is the basic tax content of the property at the particular time,
      B
      is the amount that would be the basic tax content of the property at that time if that amount were determined without reference to the description of B in paragraph (a) and the description of K in paragraph (b) of the definition basic tax content in subsection 123(1), and
