When is Inheritance Tax paid in England?

Inheritance Tax must be paid within the first six months after the person’s death. If there is property in the estate that is taking longer than expected to sell, then HMRC can grant extra time to complete the sale and pay the tax.

In cases such as the above, it is possible to pay the tax in yearly installments, but it is advised that you pay off some tax before the estate has finished being valued, as you can be charged interest on the outstanding amount.
