There appears to be no changes to inheritance tax in the Spring Statement announced on Wednesday 23 March 2022.
The existing IHT thresholds and reliefs in force remain unchanged. However, inheritance tax is rather complex and if you wish to obtain advice in connection with your inheritance tax position, or the inheritance tax position of a deceased’s person’s estate you are dealing with, please get in touch with us to speak with one of our experts.
It seems only a matter of time, inevitably, before the inheritance tax threshold changes but of course we do not know if and when that will happen. The starting point for inheritance tax is the nil rate band threshold of £325,000 but advising on inheritance tax can be significantly more complex than simply quoting this figure. Consultations have been proposed in connection with reforming inheritance tax and it will be interesting to see how the inheritance tax rules and reliefs change over time.
