She has an additional £24,000 (made up of 2 ISA's £16,320 and £5077 respectively and £3,000 premium bonds) which will pass to my father. thank you

Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

If the monies were your mother's (she inherited this sum from her mother) irrespective of the fact that you had a joint account, you should include this sum as her asset when completing IHT205.

More information on this can be found on Page 17 of IHT206-2011 (notes)

Thank you. Do I need to do anything myself to declare or complete any form for my own tax purposes or because it is below the IHT threshold it is not required? Karen

Expert:  taxadvisor.uk replied 2 years ago.

Karen, thank you for your reply.

You don't have to report any sums you have inherited to HMRC on any form for your own tax purposes.

I hope this is helpful.
