Transfers between spouses

1(1)Subject to the provisions of Part II of this Schedule and the following provisions of this paragraph, a transfer of value is an exempt transfer to the extent that the value of the estate of the transferor's spouse is increased.

(2)If, immediately before the transfer, the transferor but not the transferor's spouse is domiciled in the United Kingdom the transfer is exempt to the extent only that the increase in the value of the spouse's estate does not exceed £15,000 less any increase previously taken into account for the purposes of the exemption conferred by this paragraph.

(3)Where the transfer is made on death and the whole or part of the value of any property which devolved on or was given to the spouse (within the meaning of section 121 of and Schedule 26 to the Finance Act 1972) would have been included under section 22(5) of this Act had it not fallen to be disregarded under section 121 of that Act, the value that would have been so included shall reduce the £15,000 mentioned in sub-paragraph (2) above.

(4)In its application to Northern Ireland, sub-paragraph (3) above shall have effect as if for the references to section 121 of and Schedule 26 to the Finance Act 1972 there were substituted references to Article 5 of and Schedule 2 to the Finance (Northern Ireland) Order 1972.
