Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Part 1Subsales

Introduction

1This Part of this Schedule has effect for affording relief from duty under section 115 (contracts chargeable as conveyances) on a subsale.

Meaning of “subsale”

2For the purposes of this Schedule there is a subsale—

(a)where the purchaser under a contract or agreement for the sale of an estate or interest in land in the United Kingdom (“the original sale”), without having obtained a conveyance of the property contracted to be sold, contracts to sell the whole or part of the property to another person, or

(b)where the sub-purchaser under a subsale of an estate or interest in land in the United Kingdom, without having obtained a conveyance of the property contracted to be sold, contracts to sell to another person the whole or part of the property contracted to be sold by the original sale,

so as to entitle that person to call for a conveyance from the original seller.

Relief where duty paid on original sale or earlier subsale

3(1)Where duty under section 115 has been paid—

(a)on the original sale, or

(b)on an intervening subsale,

duty under that section on a subsale, or subsequent subsale, is chargeable only in respect of the amount (if any) by which the chargeable consideration on that transaction exceeds the chargeable consideration on the earlier transaction.

(2)If there is more than one such earlier transaction on which duty has been paid, the reference in sub-paragraph (1) to the chargeable consideration on the earlier transaction shall be read as a reference to the higher or highest amount of chargeable consideration on which duty has been paid.

(3)If the subsale does not relate to the whole of the property to which the earlier transaction related, the references in sub-paragraphs (1) and (2) to the chargeable consideration on an earlier transaction shall be read as references to an appropriate proportion of that consideration.

(4)What is an appropriate proportion shall be determined on a just and reasonable basis having regard to the subject matter of the subsale and of the earlier transaction.

(5)For the purposes of this paragraph the chargeable consideration on a transaction is the consideration that falls to be brought into account in determining the duty chargeable on it.

(6)Where under this paragraph duty on a subsale is chargeable in respect of part only of the consideration for the subsale, it is chargeable at the rate that would be applicable if the whole of the chargeable consideration on the subsale were taken into account.
