Notices of Intention of Sale

Items which have been granted Conditional Exemption from Inheritance Tax (or one of its predecessors) can be purchased by a public museum or gallery in the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland at a price considerably below the open market value. This is known as a Private Treaty Sale (PTS).

Where an item has been granted Conditional Exemption from Inheritance Tax which would have been payable at 40%, if exemption had not been claimed, and its is then sold to a public body, under normal circumstances, the purchasing gallery is only required to pay about 70% of the agreed open market value. So an item which is valued at £100,000 can be acquired for £70,000.

In most cases, owners of Conditionally Exempted items are required to give MLA three months notice of the intention to sell exempted items. You will find below the details of any items which we are notified as coming up for sale.

Further details of these items and how Private Treaty Sales are conducted can be obtained from Gerry McQuillan, Capital Taxes Manager at MLA on 020 7273 1456 or email gerry.mcquillan@mla.gov.uk
