The value on death of the particular investments sold is determined by the formula (IHTM34183) in IHTA84/S183 (5).

The consideration included in IHTA84/S183 (4) is

  • ‘Any surrender, cancellation or other alteration of any of the investments comprised in the original holding or the rights attached thereto’
  • ‘any consideration consisting of any application, in paying up the new holding or any part of it, of assets in the company concerned or of any dividend or other distribution declared out of those assets but not made.’
