or

(b) if later, within 6 months of the date of—

(i) where the investment consists of the subscription of only one amount for eligible shares, that subscription, or

(11) Where by reason of its being wound up, or dissolved without winding up, the company carries on the qualifying trade for a period shorter than 4 months, subsection (7)(a)(i) shall apply as if it referred to that shorter period but only if it is shown that the winding up or dissolution was for bona fide commercial reasons and not as part of a scheme or arrangement the main purpose or one of the main purposes of which was the avoidance of tax.
