Finance Bill 2011
From 5 April 2011, transfers of property into a trust will be disclosable under the DOTAS regime. The usual hallmarks will not apply but "grandfathering provisions" will try to ensure that certain transfers will not require repeat notification. HMRC will be providing further guidance.
