Inheritance Tax Planning

Inheritance Tax Planning

Did you know that, if your estate is worth more than the nil rate band (which currently stands at £325,000), your beneficiaries could be required to pay inheritance tax on anything you leave them above this amount?

If your estate amounts to more than the threshold, your beneficiaries may have to pay inheritance tax on any property, jewellery, savings and investments, works of art, cars, or land that you leave them. The rate of inheritance tax currently stands at 40%, or 36% if you leave at least 10% of your assets to a charity.

No one likes to think that their loved ones will be left with a substantial bill at the hands of the estate you have worked so hard to build. But there are ways in which you can reduce the amount of inheritance tax you have to pay – the most important thing is to be prepared, to understand if your estate will qualify for inheritance tax, and to consider the ways in which you can reduce or eliminate this liability.
