Free legislation on LexisWeb is as enacted and does not take into account any amendments
(1) This section applies if two or more absolute interests in the whole or the same part of the residue of an estate are held successively during the administration period by different persons.
(2) In determining whether a person with a later such interest (“the later holder”) has an assumed income entitlement in respect of that interest and, if so, its amount—
(a) the later holder's share of the residuary income of the estate in respect of that interest for any tax year is to be treated as including the share of any person with a previous such interest (“a previous holder”), and
(b) the basic amounts relating to the later holder's interest are to be treated as including the basic amounts relating to any previous such interest.
(3) In applying subsection (2), all determinations under that subsection or section 672(2) that fall to be made in relation to a person with an earlier interest are to be made before determinations under those provisions relating to a person with a later interest.
(4) A person who is a previous holder in the final tax year is to be taxed in that year, in relation to the interest as to which that person is a previous holder, as if that year were not the final tax year, and the later holder's assumed income entitlement in that year is to be calculated accordingly.
(5) The calculation under section 668(1)(a) and (b) (amount of reduction in the share of the residuary income of the person with an absolute interest at the end of the administration period) is to be made by reference to all the absolute interests taken together.
(6) If the amount resulting from that calculation is greater than the total amount of the reductions which can be made under section 668(2) and (3), the share of the residuary income of the estate of the last previous holder of the interest for the last tax year in which that last holder had that interest is to be reduced, and so on.
(7) For the purposes of this section and sections 672 to 676, two interests are held successively even where one is not held immediately before or after the other.
(8) It is assumed for those purposes that each of the persons holding the interests in question is a person liable to income tax.
This Act comes into force on 6 April 2005 and has effect, for the purposes of income tax for the year 2005–06 and subsequent tax years, and for the purposes of corporation tax for accounting periods ending after 5 April 2005: see s 883; for transitional provisions and savings see Sch 2 hereto.
