Special Disability Trusts – extension to CGT relief

The Government will extend the CGT relief for special disability trusts announced in the 2010 Budget by:

  • Providing a CGT exemption for assets transferred into a special disability

trust for no consideration

  • Backdating the application of the CGT main residence exemption to

2006/07

  • Providing a CGT exemption for the recipient of the principal beneficiary’s

main residence, if disposed of within two years of the principal
beneficiary’s death

  • Ensuring equivalent tax treatment of special disability trusts under

different Acts.
