Interest in part of a fund: value of a share
The importance of IHTA84/S50 (5) is that it ensures that the beneficiary’s interest is valued as a fraction of the whole, with no question of joint property discount (IHTM15071).
The share to be valued (IHTM16101) on a termination in lifetime depends upon whether the claim is on -
- the termination of all of that beneficiary’s interest, or
- the termination of part of that beneficiary’s interest - IHTA84/S52 (4)
On a claim on a death the termination necessarily relates to the entire share in which the beneficiary had an interest and that share is to be valued.
