FAQ: When is Inheritance Tax paid in England?

Posted on: 2 January 2018 by Goodwins Family Law Solicitors

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.

If you would like to arrange an initial fixed fee consultation regarding your divorce proceedings, you can get in touch with Goodwins Family Law today for a confidential discussion and we’ll be happy to help. Our offices are conveniently based in Harrow, London, with on site car parking and accessible from public transport links. Alternatively, if you are overseas we can arrange a Skype call with you if it is more convenient.
