APR provides relief on UK inheritance tax payable on lifetime transfers or on death. The relief will be either 50% or 100% of the UK inheritance tax payable on the agricultural value of the property. In order for a property to qualify for relief at 100%, it is necessary for one of three conditions to be satisfied:
that the transferor has the right to vacant possession on the transfer, or the right to obtain it within 24 months
that the transferor has been beneficially entitled to the interest since before 10 March 1981 and satisfies the transitional provisions contained in IHTA 1984, s 116(3)
that the property is let on a tenancy beginning on or after 1 September 1995
All other properties which qualify for APR will be subject to relief at 50%.
