Gifts with reservation of benefit: Introduction
A gift with reservation of benefit (GWR) (IHTM04071) charge arises on either
- the death of the donor (the person who made the GWR), or
- the release of the reservation by the donor.
The conditions for agricultural relief on property charged as a GWR depends on whether the property is
- land or buildings to which IHTA84/S116 applies (IHTM24201), or
- shares or securities in a company to whichIHTA84/S122 (1) applies (IHTM24203).
If the property charged is shares or securities in a company with agricultural assets to which IHTA84/S122 (1) does not apply, then agricultural relief will not be due but business relief may be relevant (IHTM24204).
