INTERACTIVE IHT LIABILITY CALCULATOR

This calculator can be used to give you a rough indication of what your IHT Liability might be. Any results should not be interpreted as fact.

Please don’t take any of this as personalised advice. Inheritance Tax rules are unbelievably complex and your individual circumstances impact any liability. If you (or a deceased spouse) have made significant gifts, downsized your residential property or have existing Inheritance Tax Plans in place, your situation will be completely different.

Different allowances/rules apply if your estate is valued at over £2 Million. If this is the case, you will almost certainly have an Inheritance Tax problem.
