Taxes Consolidation Act, 1997 (Number 39 of 1997)
576 Person becoming absolutely entitled to settled property.
[CGTA75 s15(3) and (8)]
(1) On the occasion when a person becomes absolutely entitled to any settled property as against the trustee, all the assets forming part of the settled property to which the person becomes so entitled shall be deemed for the purposes of the Capital Gains Tax Acts to have been disposed of by the trustee, and immediately reacquired by the trustee in the trustee’s capacity as a trustee within section 567(2), for a consideration equal to their market value.
(2) On the occasion when a person becomes absolutely entitled to any settled property as against the trustee, any allowable loss which has accrued to the trustee in respect of property which is, or is represented by, the property to which that person becomes so entitled (including any allowable loss carried forward to the year of assessment in which that occasion falls), being a loss which cannot be deducted from chargeable gains accruing to the trustee in that year, but before that occasion, shall be treated for the purposes of the Capital Gains Tax Acts as if it were an allowable loss accruing at that time to the person becoming so entitled, instead of to the trustee.
