The settlor: death charge on lifetime transfers chargeable when made

Under IHTA84/S201 (2), where the transfer is not a PET (IHTM04057) the settlor is not liable under IHTA84/S201 (1)(d) for any extra tax payable because the transferor (i.e. the beneficiary in possession immediately before the transfer) dies within seven years.
