Inheritance tax, explained

Also known as IHT, inheritance tax is a tax owed on your estate (the sum value of property, money, assets etc.) after you die. There is a tax-free amount of £325,000, with a further £175,000 (as of August 2023) if your primary residence is part of your estate, and it’s passed onto a child or grandchild.

Anything over this threshold is taxed at 40%, which means those inheriting large estates may find themselves with a rather significant tax bill. This is often paid out of the estate value or through a specialised loan.

At Lloydbottoms, we support individuals in planning their estate. Our goal is to help you manage your estate, and ensure those you care about can enjoy the full benefit of your will.

Exemptions and reducing your bill

As with many areas of tax, there are some exemptions. If you decide to leave your whole estate to a spouse or partner, or donate assets to certain charities, these beneficiaries won’t be taxed.

You can also reduce the tax burden on your loved ones by gifting assets in advance, or setting up trusts although you could end up paying more tax overall.

The team at Lloydbottoms will be more than happy to discuss your options, so that you can ensure your loved ones and other beneficiaries can enjoy as much of your estate as possible.
