For a given cadlag process the precise notion of tangent process with independent increments is introduced. Using this notion, a certain class of quasicontinuous processes is defined which includes all quasicontinuous semimartingales and processes with independent increments. As in the case of semimartingales such processes are characterised by triplets of previsible characteristics but the ”drift” characteristic can be of unbounded variation. Limit theorems in terms of triplets can be obtained.
