Taxed to the End; By 2019, 262,000 Estates (+800%) Will Pay IHT

Britain has the 2nd most onerous inheritance tax regime in the world with only Ireland being worse.

Treasury forecasts suggest that the number of families required to pay inheritance tax will rise by an astonishing 35% this year, to 35,600. That number is expected to jump to 43,800 next year. Over the next 5 years, an increase of 800% is projected, representing 262,000 families.

It needn’t be like this; with adequate planning, there are many legal ways to minimise IHT.
