This tax is on the estate (assets, property, cash) of a deceased person. If the value of the inheritance is below £350,000 or you have willed everything to spouse, community,  or charity then there is no tax to be paid. However, this still has to be reported to HMRC. There are several ways of planning inheritance taxes. You can add unused threshold limit to your spouse/civil partner’s estate although this could increase theirs. The standard rate of tax is 40% of the value of the estate. However, if you leave 10% or more to charity, you have to pay only 36% tax on some assets. It’s important to know that some gifts given in your lifetime may be taxed after your death. However, our experienced team can provide you with useful information about taper relief, business and agricultural relief.
