IHT: disclosure regime change from 6 April

printer Mail

HMRC have published a reminder that the disclosure regime for avoidance schemes is extended with effect from 6 April to require the disclosure of inheritance tax arrangements that seek to avoid IHT charges associated with transfers of property into trust.

The change was the subject of consultation last year and will be implemented by the Inheritance Tax Avoidance Schemes (Prescribed Descriptions of Arrangements) Regulations, SI 2011/170.

HMRC guidance is available and includes a flowchart for use in ascertaining whether arrangements amount to a ‘notifiable inheritance tax scheme’.
