Relevant Property trust or is it?

(Lucy Orrow) #1

I have a pre-2006 IIP Trust with two IIP beneficiaries (principal and secondary).

The secondary beneficiary is now deceased and as the trust continues their share becomes a relevant property trust. Does this mean the trust is effectively split in two, with half being taxed as a relevant property trust and half not? Or does it taint the whole trust?

The continuing pre-2006 IIP will retain its status for HIT, with only
the deceased life tenant’s former share coming within the relevant
property regime.
