Inheritance Tax

A tax charge applied to an estate on death, usually at a rate of 40%. Any financial gifts you have given away in the seven years prior to your death usually count as part of your estate for Inheritance Tax purposes, but there are exceptions.

We have a guide to Inheritance Tax and estate planning which gives you more information.
