The question in Sanders v Commissioner of Inland Revenue (1982) 5 NZTC 61,380 was whether two gifts, seemingly made in different years, were actually given within twelve months of each other and were thus liable for gift duty. The court applied the rule that a gift is complete when the donor has done everything that is necessary to complete the transfer of property to the donee. In this case it was found that the two gifts were within twelve months of each other and the Commissioner was right to charge gift duty.
