  • Inheritance Tax Planning advice (156kb)
    Inheritance Tax (“IHT”) is a charge on the value of the assets gifted by someone either during their lifetime or on their death. The main rate of IHT is 40%. This is charged on the value of the assets over the available nil rate band of that person. This applies both to the value of the assets in the estate on death and to gifts of assets in the seven years before death. Taper relief can reduce the amount of tax payable on gifts made more than three years but less than seven years before death. Read our document for more advice on Inheritance Tax Planning.
