UK deceased left legacy to beneficiary in southern Ireland she wishes the legacy to pass to her children not to herself are there Irish tax issues to consider. No IHT is due from the estate
1. Dear *****, the position if your children take, for example, under a Deed of Variation, is that it will be their tax exemption which will apply, not yours. My opinion is that if your gift is tax exempt, then so is theirs. In the UK, Inheritance tax is payable by the estate. Not by the individual. So, if you are exempt, then so will your children. If the estate is under the tax threshold of £325,000 then there is no tax payable.
2. Please Rate the answer as unless you Rate the answer your expert will receive no payment for answering your question.
