It has been revealed that HM Revenue & Customs (‘HMRC’) has launched a crackdown on Inheritance Tax (‘IHT’) evasion, which may result in a large number of people finding themselves subject to investigation and possible liability for payment of substantial fines.

The Position | Kangs Tax Offences Defence Team

  • It is estimated that one in four estates are now investigated for suspected IHT avoidance.
  • Last year twenty-two thousand estates were liable for payment of IHT across the UK.
  • The affairs of more than five thousand five hundred and thirty estates were investigated by HMRC.
  • Where HMRC evidence complete evasion or an underpayment of IHT it will require the shortfall to be recovered from the estate.
  • In addition, a substantial financial penalty will be imposed and recovered from the estate.
