When is Inheritance Tax payable?


HMRC expect Inheritance Tax to be paid within 1 year of death. You will be charged penalties if the Inheritance Tax is not paid in time. However, after just 6 months following someone’s death HMRC will begin charging interest on the Inheritance Tax due until it is paid so it is best to act quickly when dealing with someone’s estate.
