  41. 41. On death Mr Smith passes all of his estate (plus jointly owned assets) to his wife free from IHT. However, this wastes 100% of his Nil Rate Band. Nil Rate Band £325,000 (this amount has been frozen until 2015) Mrs Smith total Sole Estate = £650,000 Mr & Mrs Smith’s total joint Estate £650,000. A transferable Nil Rate Band now arises when one party to a marriage/civil partnership dies and the amount of their estate chargeable to IHT does not use up all of the Nil Rate Band. Where this happens, the unused part can now be transferred to the surviving spouse/civil partner when they die. Assuming Mrs Smith dies after 9 October 2007, her executors may also utilise the late Mr Smith’s Nil Rate Band which he wasted by leaving everything to his widow. Less 2 x Nil Rate Bands = £650,000 Taxable Estate = £0 Alleviation for Middle England
  42. 42. Mr Smith’s Estate £325,000 Mrs Smith’s Estate £325,000 Mr Smith leaves the £325,000 in a Discretionary Will Trust. Total Estate = £325,000 TAX DUE @ 40% NIL Taxable Estate = Nil Nil Rate Band £325,000 (As of April 2010) Levels and bases of, and reliefs from taxation are subject to change. If the potential growth in value of an asset is likely to outstrip future increases in the Nil Rate Band, tax planned Wills on first death leaving an amount up to £325,000 [2010/11] to a trust should still be considered. Inheritance Tax Solution TAX DUE @ 40% = NIL Year 2010 value of trust - £390,000 (available NRB - £325,000 had asset passed to surviving spouse on first death.)
  43. 43. Levels and bases of, and reliefs from taxation are subject to change IHT savings may still be made via tax planned wills in the medium/long term even where the combined estate is <=£650,000. Couples with existing Pre-Budget wills should revisit them. A simple codicil may suffice for required changes. The ideal solution may be to always use a first death discretionary nil rate band trust and let the trustees decide the right action to take when death occurs. Outcome
