Foreign property: discretionary trusts and exempt securities: exception for certain settled reversions
The IHTA84/S48 (6) anti-avoidance rules do not apply to property moving between settlements where:
- someone was entitled to a reversionary interest in the property expectant on when a qualifying interest in possession under the first (or original) settlement came to an end, and
- before 10 December 1981, they settled that reversionary interest on the trusts of the second/new settlement
- property held in a settlement moved into a sub-settlement before 20 April 1978 - for example. where property in the first settlement was appointed by its trustees on the trusts of another settlement, which is a sub-settlement in relation to the appointed property. In these cases Compliance will need to consider whether any exempt securities held in the sub-settlement are excluded, in the light of the decision in Minden Trust (Cayman) Ltd v IRC  STC 758.
