Gifts: assets used in a trade: trade and non-trade use

Hold-over relief is available if the asset is an asset used for the purposes of a trade. This means that it has to have been in trade use just before it is gifted. Previous periods of non-trade use will restrict the relief and CG66951 tells you how to calculate this.
