Transfers by close companies: foreign aspects
Where an individual is domiciled outside of the UK (IHTM13002), the provisions of IHTA84/S94 (2)(b) need to be considered. These provisions affect the amount apportioned to the participator. They do this by excluding from that amount any part of the value that is attributable to the value of property outside the UK.
A transfer of value by
- a company incorporated abroad (hence domiciled abroad - Gasque v IRC  2 KB 80), of
- property situated abroad
is not excluded property since IHTA84/S6 (1) only applies to individuals.
However, if such a company
- is resident abroad, and
- makes a transfer of exempt Government securities within IHTA84/S6 (2),
they do qualify as excluded property.
