Are you aware of the new inheritance tax changes?

Posted on 4 Apr 2017, in OMM News

From April 2017, important changes to the tax are being phased in over a five-year plan- to include a new residence nil rate band.

Are you aware of the new inheritance tax changes?

The new nil rate band will mean married couples whose estates are worth between £650,000 and £2 million could save an incredible amount in tax on their estates. Those whose estate’s value falls below £650,000 need not worry and estates valued in excess of £2 million will not be eligible for the full additional allowance.

Previously, individuals could pass on a maximum of £325,000 to their offspring without paying tax, but the amount has risen by £100,000, and will further increase to £500,000 by 2020. The changes will allow many families in the UK to pass on more of their property-wealth to their children without paying the levy.

Partner, Tim Woolford, stressed that any couple eligible for the new Residence Nil Rate Band should review their Wills.

He said, “It is important that Wills are amended and correctly worded to qualify for the new allowance – this is where we can help. Our friendly and knowledgeable team are happy to help you review your Will and prepare new or make amendments to existing Wills to ensure you maximise the value of your estate for your loved ones.”
