How it works

This calculator has been designed to illustrate your approximate potential inheritance tax (IHT) liability. 

Inheritance tax can be a complicated topic and this calculator is intended to help you understand your potential liability.

Please note that tax planning is not regulated by the FCA.

Important! Please note

This calculator is intended to give you an approximate estimate of your estate and your inheritance tax liability. The information is computer-generated and therefore does not take into account all factors associated with inheritance tax. Your exact inheritance tax liability will depend on a number of factors. 

Please note that this calculator does not take into account an individual’s domicile status, which can have an impact on the available reliefs and taxable estate. It also assumes that any property is being left to a UK domicile spouse or qualifying descendants. If you have questions about domicile status and intended legacies, please speak with the TaxAssist Tax Consulting team on 0800 4880 919 or email [email protected].

Please also note that some investments may not be subject to inheritance in some circumstances, such as AIM shares. Speak to a TaxAssist Financial Services Adviser for more information.

Information contained within this page is based on our understanding of current HMRC legislation, which may change. Information is believed to be correct as of 2nd August 2023. Tax rules, reliefs and allowances can change and how they affect you will depend on your personal circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. We cannot accept responsibility for any errors. If you take, or do not take action as a result of using this calculator, without first seeking expert advice, we will accept no responsibility for any financial loss incurred.
