The Inheritance Tax (IHT) Allowance is the amount of wealth that you can receive, tax-free, from someone who passed away.
In the 2021/2022 tax year, it’s £325,000.
Sometimes the IHT Allowance can increase:
If the estate’s value is below the IHT Allowance, you’ll still need to report it to HMRC, even if you don’t need to pay any Inheritance Tax.
Also, if your spouse or civil partner leaves everything to you, it’s all tax-free: any gifts between spouses and civil partners are tax-free.
