Assessing: calculation principles: assessment groups
The property within each Entry (IHTM31011) is divided into assessment groups. The three types are
- NIOP non-instalment option property - this is essentially personal property, for example, household goods or bank accounts
- IOP instalment option property - land and business interests, including unlisted shares
- IOP(WIR) instalment option property, with interest relief - land and business assets that qualify for interest relief
You can have more than one (IHTM31133) IOP or IOP (WIR) assessment group within an Entry. You can have numerous NIOP groups if you are using the manual calculation template, but only one per Entry on COMPASS (IHTM31101).
