FIRST SCHEDULE Valuation of Limited Interests  
Sections 18 , Sections 26 and Sections 41 .  
PART I  
Rules relating to the valuation of limited interests utilising Tables A and B in Parts II and III of this Schedule  
1. The value of an interest for a single life in a capital sum shall be that sum multiplied by the factor, contained in column 3 or 4 respectively of Table A, which is appropriate to the age and sex of the person in respect of the duration of whose life the interest is to be valued.  
2. The value of an interest in a capital sum for the joint continuance of two lives shall be the value of an interest in that sum for the older life, ascertained in accordance with rule 1, multiplied by the joint factor in column 2 of Table A which is appropriate to the younger life.  
3. The value of an interest in a capital sum for the joint continuance of three or more lives shall be the value of an interest in that sum for the joint continuance of the two oldest of those lives, ascertained in accordance with rule 2, multiplied by the joint factor of the youngest of those lives.  
4. The value of an interest in a capital sum for the longer of two lives shall be ascertained by deducting from the total of the values of an interest in that sum for each of those lives, ascertained in accordance with rule 1, the value of an interest in the capital sum for the joint continuance of the same two lives, ascertained in accordance with rule 2.  
5. Where an interest is given for the longest of more than two lives, it shall be valued, in accordance with rule 4, as if it were for the longer of the two youngest of those lives.  
6. The value of an interest in a capital sum for a period certain shall be the aggregate of—  
(a) the value of the capital sum, multiplied by the factor in Table B which is appropriate to the number of whole years in that period (or zero if that period is less than a whole year); and  
(b) where the period is not an integral number of years, a fraction (of which the numerator is the number of days in excess of the number of whole years, if any, in that period and the denominator is 365) of the difference between—  
(i) the value of an interest in the capital sum for one year longer than the number of whole years, if any, in the period; and  
(ii) the value ascertained under the provisions of paragraph (a) (or zero, where so provided in the said paragraph).  
7. In the case of a limited interest where the interest is for a life or lives, but is guaranteed for a period certain, the value shall be the higher of—  
(a) the value of an interest for such life or lives, ascertained in accordance with the appropriate rule in this part of this Schedule; and  
(b) the value of an interest for the period certain, ascertained in accordance with rule 6.  
8. The value of a limited interest for which the other rules in this Part of this Schedule provide no method of valuing shall be ascertained as if the interest taken were a series of absolute interests in the property applied in satisfaction of the interest from time to time, taken as separate gifts or inheritances, as the case may be.
