My in laws want to gift me and my husband £50,000 new

This answer was rated:

my in laws want to gift me and my husband £50,000 for our new home are there any tax implications on this or is this classed as a potentially taxable gift
Hello Rebecca,The gift is under the potential rules.The original owner must live for 7 years after giving the gift. Any gifts made less than 7 years before death count towards the Inheritance Tax threshold (£325,000). They count towards the threshold before the rest of the estate.If the donor gave away more than £325,000 of gifts in their final 7 years, tax is due on everything over that threshold.If my answer addressed your question please rate below or above (let me know if you have difficulty as I believe the system changed), if you need more information reply below.

great thank you I thought this was the case just wanted to check so he can give us the money with no other tax implications as long as he lives for 7 years ?

That is correct. The 7 years is relevant for the estate not to count to amount.You are most welcome.My goal is to give you excellent service.Your positive rating is thanks enough
