Inheritance Tax

Inheritance tax is levied at 40% on the value of all your property, except the Nil Rate Allowance, and some exemptions.

  • In the case of married couples the Nil Rate Band of the first to die can be added to the estate of the second to die.

  • Life time gifts are exempt if they are made more than seven years before death.

  • The use of trusts can protect your estate and minimise inheritance tax.

  • Where there has been bereavement and remarriage particular care has to be taken.

  • Older Wills and home-made Wills often have distressing tax consequences.
