I7.195 BPR clawback—examples

Example 1—simple clawback on PET

A makes a potentially exempt transfer of a 10% holding of unquoted shares in a trading company on 8 August 2015 to B. He had made chargeable transfers of £315,000 in the seven years before this transfer.

In January 2017 B gives the 10% to C.

A dies on 5 February 2018.

The diminution in value of A's estate by virtue of the transfer of the 10% holding was £30,000.

The IHT on the transfer to B (calculated at the tax rates at A's death):

£IHT
Transfer (no BPR)30,000
Deduct: nil rate band (reduced by previous CLTs)(10,000)
Transfer and tax on it£20,000£8,000

Note that if B had died before A, the BPR on that holding would have been available when calculating the IHT on the transfer from A to B.
