FAQ

What is the inheritance tax threshold in the UK

The inheritance tax threshold, also known as the nil-rate band, in the UK is currently set at £325,000 for the tax year 2023/24. This means that the first £325,000 of an individual's estate is tax-free.

Who pays inheritance tax?

Individuals who are domiciled in the UK are liable to inheritance tax on transfers of all assets anywhere in the world. On the other hand, individuals, who are not domiciled in the UK, are liable to inheritance tax on transfers of their UK assets only.


If you are unable to figure out your domicile status, contact us at UK Property Accountants.

Do I need to fill in Inheritance Tax form?

IHT100 form must be submitted for chargeable lifetime transfers (CLT).

If you make a Potentially Exempt Transfers (PET), you do not need to report it to HMRC at the time you make the gift. However, if you die within seven years of making the gift, it will need to be reported on your inheritance tax return, which is usually completed by the executor of your estate.

We can help you fill the inheritance tax form to report and pay your taxes.

What all are exempt from Inheritance Tax?

There are certain transfers/gifts which are exempt from inheritance tax.

  • Spousal exemption: Assets passing between spouses or civil partners are exempt from IHT.
  • Annual gift exemption: You can give up to £3,000 per tax year as gifts without it being subject to IHT.
  • Small gift exemption: You can make small gifts of up to £250 to as many people as you like without it being subject to IHT.
  • Gifts for weddings and civil partnerships: You can give cash or gifts worth up to £1,000 per person, rising to £2,500 for a grandchild or great-grandchild, and £5,000 for a child, without it being subject to IHT.
  • Charitable donations: Gifts to registered charities or political parties are exempt from IHT.
  • Business or agricultural property: Business assets and agricultural property can qualify for IHT relief if certain conditions are met.

It's important to note that the exemptions and allowances for IHT can change over time and may be subject to certain conditions and our experts are well-updated on the changes.

When is inheritance tax due?

You must pay Inheritance Tax by the end of the sixth month after the person passes away.

In case of chargeable lifetime transfers, lifetime inheritance tax is paid later of :

  • Six months from the end of the month of the gift, and
  • 30 April in the following tax year.

What is the 7-year rule in inheritance tax?

A potentially exempt transfer will not give rise to inheritance tax during lifetime of the donor. These transfers will be fully exempt if donor survives for 7 years from the date of the gift. If donor dies within 7 years of the gift, inheritance is payable.
