  • Posted

It is proposed that there will be an additional Nil Rate Tax Band for a person’s residence when this is passed to a direct descendant on death.  The additional Nil Rate Tax Band will be:-

2017-2018 – £100,000

2018-2019 – £125,000

2019-2020 – £150,000

2020- 2021- £175,000

With effect from 2020-2021 assuming no increase is made in the existing Nil Rate Tax Band the Nil Rate Tax Band will rise to £500,000.

If this proposal is agreed this will be in addition to any existing Nil Rate Tax band that is currently in place.
