What about Buy and sell policies, cessions and second hand policies being CG taxable. I have two companies where the shares of the shareholders have been transferred to their respective trusts. Ceding these policies to the trusts constitutes them second hand and thus CG taxable. One legal advisor suggested we make the trusts the beneficiaries and then cede them to the ‘connected person’ being the trust and thus avoiding the tag of ‘second hand’ and thus avoid the proceeds in the event of a claim being CG taxable. This was obviously not the intention i.e. proceeds of life assurance being CG taxable if deemed ‘second hand’. Is this issue also being addressed in the same forum?

Your enlightenment would be greatly appreciated

SARS issued a binding private ruling (BPR 098) on 24 March 2011 on par. 55(1)(a)(ii) of the 8th Schedule to the ITA regarding CGT on ceded policies. Take special note of the conditions and assumptions.
Please see the attached document (Thanx to Corlia van der Merwe of Momentum)

No, buy and sell policies are not affected. They are not intended to be company owned policies
