Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello John, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
Yes it will, it will reduce your late Mother's exposure to Inheritance Tax (IHT) which is at 40% on assets over 325K. By the way, is there a family home involved in your Mother's estate, willed to children? .
I don't wish to be pedantic, but is it the family home?
Your Mother's IHT threshold is increased to 450K, better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!
How will HMRC know, the gifts are outside the Potentially Exempt Transfer (PET) seven year add back time frame?
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
Delete 'girl' insert 'gifts.'
Thank you for your support.
