Good news! Based on what you have told us your estate is not liable to inheritance tax.

The calculator makes three assumptions:

  • The main residence will be passed to a direct descendant (not a spouse)
  • You have not inherited some or all of a spouse’s nil rate band or residence nil rate band
  • No assets will qualify for Business Property Relief

If any of the above assumptions are not true for your circumstances then the result will be significantly altered, you should seek financial advice.

If you have recently downsized or sold your main residence then you could still benefit from more or some of the Residence Nil Rate Band if the previous residence would have qualified; this calculator does not account for this.

Gifts made in the last 7 years should be subject to inheritance tax on the recipient.

Based on what you have told us your estate may be liable to inheritance tax.

It could be worthwhile speaking to a Financial Adviser. With the right forward planning it is possible to significantly reduce, or eliminate altogether, any tax liability. Tax rules can change and tax liability depends on personal circumstances.
