Business relief: Replacement property: Introduction

The ownership test (IHTM25301) is not satisfied if the business property was not owned by the transferor (IHTM25302) throughout the two years immediately preceding the transfer.

However, you can still treat the test as satisfied if the property replaced other business property and certain conditions are met, IHTA84/S107(1).
