Inheritance Tax is a tax on the estate (the property, money and possessions) of someone who’s died.
If the estate’s value is below the threshold you’ll still need to.
If you give away your home to your children (including adopted, foster or stepchildren) or grandchildren.
If you’re married or in a civil partnership and your estate is worth less than your threshold, any unused threshold can be added to your partner’s threshold when you die. This means their threshold can be as much as £1 million.
The standard Inheritance Tax rate is 40%. It’s only charged on the part of your estate that’s above the threshold.
