Inheritance Tax Relief

Currently, if your estate is worth more than £325,000, the executors of your will may have to pay inheritance tax at 40%.  A way of reducing this bill is to leave 10% or more of your estate to charity as you may then qualify for a reduced rate of inheritance tax (36% rather than 40%) giving you more control over your own money.

You can calculate your predicted inheritance tax liability, and how this can be reduced with a gift to charity using the government’s inheritance tax calculator

Inheritance tax can be complicated, so if you think that your estate might need to pay it,  it makes sense to get professional advice.
