Additional permitted subscription – (Pass on the benefits)

From 6 April 2015, when an ISA holder dies, their ISA will still form part of their estate and it will lose its wrapper status. However, the surviving spouse or civil partner will be given an additional, one-off ISA allowance, equal to the value of the deceased's ISA holdings. The time limit for making an additional permitted subscription in cash is 3 years from the date of death. If the spouse or civil partner become the beneficial owner of the deceased's ISA assets, these can be transferred within 180 days of beneficial ownership passing to the spouse or civil partner.

Additional Permitted Subscriptions are available in respect of deaths on or after 3 December 2014. The time limit for these will begin from 6 April 2015. The deceased and the surviving spouse must have been living together at the date of death. That is, not separated under a court order, under a deed of separation, or in circumstances where the separation was likely to be permanent.

Please note that that this allowance is purely for spouses or civil partners – no one else will be entitled to it, even if they were left the proceeds of the ISA itself. Conditions will apply, if you have further questions please contact Client Services by emailing contact@alliancetrust.co.uk or calling 01382 573737.
