Gifts pre-14/3/89: introduction
There were two forms of hold-over relief available if an asset was disposed of by way of gift before 14 March 1989 (referred to as pre-1989 gifts). Each relief applied to different types of asset and the two did not overlap. Relief was only available if a claim was made.
If you have to decide which relief applies in a case involving a pre-1989 gift then you have to consider two things
- the nature of the asset
- the date of the gift.
