Section 476: How to work out whether settlor meets condition C
1377.This section applies for the purposes of working out whether a settlor in relation to the settlement meets condition C. It is based on section 685E(4) and (5) of ICTA.
1378.Subsections (2) and (3) each provide that a person who is a settlor in relation to a settlement meets condition C if the person was UK resident, ordinarily UK resident or domiciled in the United Kingdom at the time specified in the subsection.
1379.Subsection (2) applies if the settlement arose on the death of the settlor and requires the settlor’s residence and domicile to be determined immediately before the settlor’s death.
1380.Subsection (3) applies in all other cases and requires the settlor’s residence and domicile to be determined at every time when a settlor makes, or is treated as making, the settlement (see, in particular, section 467(3)).
1381.Subsections (2) and (3) also each provide that a person who meets condition C in relation to a settlement at the time specified in the subsection continues to meet condition C at all subsequent times until the person ceases to be a settlor in relation to the settlement.
1382.Accordingly, the single person mentioned in section 474(1) will be treated as UK resident and ordinarily UK resident for as long as the settlement has mixed residence trustees and there continues to be a settlor who meets condition C in relation to the settlement.
