What you need to know about Inheritance Tax Reforms

Published: 29/08/2019 By Thomas

The Office of Tax Simplification has published its second report on the simplification of inheritance tax. It's recommendations include:

- Replacing the various small gift allowances and the regular gifts out of income exemption with a single increased annual gift allowance.

- Reducing the period during which lifetime gifts can be taxed on death from seven years to five years and abolishing taper relief.

- Removing the capital gains tax-free uplift on death for assets which qualify for an inheritance tax relief or exemption. The recipient will instead inherit the deceased's base cost history.
