What is Inheritance Tax?

Inheritance Tax is a significant consideration for UK residents, impacting the transfer of your assets, which may include your property, investments, and possessions, to your beneficiaries. It’s essential to comprehend the key concepts surrounding IHT to make the most of your estate planning:

Unused Threshold

Certain assets and gifts are exempt from Inheritance Tax. These exemptions can include bequests to your spouse or civil partner, donations to registered charities, and specific property items. Utilizing these reliefs and exemptions can significantly lower your overall IHT liability.

Residence Nil Rate Band

For families passing on their home, or part of it, to their children, including adopted and foster children, the Residence Nil Rate Band (RNRB) can provide an additional layer of exemption. Utilizing this allowance can significantly reduce your IHT liability, provided certain criteria are met.

Reliefs and Exemptions

Certain assets and gifts are exempt from Inheritance Tax. These exemptions can include bequests to your spouse or civil partner, donations to registered charities, and specific property items. Utilizing these reliefs and exemptions can significantly lower your overall IHT liability.

FAQ

Inheritance Tax applies to the estates of UK residents. Your estate may be subject to IHT depending on its value and the exemptions or reliefs applicable.

As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, the standard Inheritance Tax rate is 40% on the value of your estate that exceeds the tax-free threshold.

The tax-free threshold, also known as the nil rate band, allows a certain amount of your estate to be exempt from Inheritance Tax. For married couples and civil partners, any unused threshold from the first partner’s estate can be transferred to the surviving spouse, effectively doubling the exemption.

Letting relief is a relief that can be claimed when you’ve let out part of your property. We assess the scope of letting relief to ensure you take full advantage of any applicable deductions.

The Residence Nil Rate Band is an additional exemption that applies when you leave your home, or part of it, to your children, including adopted and foster children. It can further reduce the Inheritance Tax liability, subject to specific conditions.

There are several strategies to minimise Inheritance Tax, including effective estate planning, making lifetime gifts, utilising trusts, and taking advantage of exemptions and reliefs.

While it’s possible to manage your Inheritance Tax planning independently, consulting with tax professionals, like TaxCare, can provide invaluable expertise and ensure that your strategy is in compliance with the latest tax laws.

Tax laws can change from one tax year to the next. Therefore, it’s recommended to review your estate planning regularly, ideally every tax year, to ensure it remains up-to-date and tax-efficient.
