Finance Act 2014

Details of the Section

2.Subsection (2)(a) extends section 72(1B)(a)(iii) of the Taxation of Chargeable Gains Act 1992 to include all disabled person’s interests as defined by section 89B of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984 within those interests to which section 72(1) applies, in particular sections 89B(1)(a) and (b) that provide for interests where the person with the interest is treated as beneficially entitled to an interest in possession in the trust property. Section 73(2A)(a) applies this extension automatically to section 73 in the same way that it applies for section 72. The effect of this change is to apply the same capital gains tax treatment to property within a vulnerable beneficiary trust for a person with a disability where the beneficiary has no interest in possession in the trust property as is available where the beneficiary does have an interest in possession.

3.Subsection (2)(b) inserts new subsection 72(6), which deems that an interest in possession for the purpose of section 72 includes an interest within the meaning of section 89B(1)(a) or (b) of the Inheritance Tax Act 1984.

4.Subsection (3) amends section 73(3) in order to apply new subsection 72(6) for the purpose of section 73 in the same way that it applies for section 72.

5.Subsection (4) provides for commencement.
