- Realisation vote in 2029 and every four years thereafter, with a Final Termination Date of 30 November 2037.
- 100% IHT relief after two years of ownership.
There is no guarantee that annual distributions will be made. Whether or not there is a distribution and/or the amount of any annual distribution will depend largely on the level of harvesting carried out and the value of the timber harvested. The strategy will be to balance the level of distribution against the objective of providing tax free capital appreciation. Investors should not plan or invest on the basis that distributions will be made. At 31 May 2019 the forest portfolio totalled 14,693 hectares (36,308 acres) over 43 properties across Scotland, Wales and England.
