The 6th April 2018 marked an expected increase in the Residence Nil Rate Band. For deaths that occur in the tax year 18/19, the Residence Nil Rate Band is £125,000.
As projected by the government in April 2017, the new Residence Nil Rate Band was introduced and set to increase annually:-
For deaths during the following tax years:
2017-2018 = £100,000
2018-2019 = £125,000
2019-2020 = £150,000
2020 onwards = £175,000
Combined with the Nil Rate Band of £325,000, by 2020 an individual will be allowed £500,000 worth of assets tax free. It follows that a married couple will have a £1,000,000 allowance between them before Inheritance Tax is due.
