Variations: estate: disclaimers: conditions
TCGA92/S62 (6) to (9)
The conditions for a disclaimer to be retrospective for CGT purposes, all of which mustbe satisfied, are that
- the disclaimer must be effected by an instrument in writing made within two years of the person’s death
- the persons who wish to disclaim all or part of their entitlement under the will or intestacy provisions must be parties to the instrument
- there must be no consideration in money or money’s worth for the disclaimer other than consideration in the form of a disclaimer or variation of other dispositions of the same estate.
In contrast to the position with instruments of variation, in the case of a disclaimerwhere the conditions set out in CG31490 are satisfied, the effects described in CG31480apply automatically in all cases. There is no need to refer to s62 (6) TCGA in theinstrument.
