The residence nil rate band is planned to come into effect in 2017. Unless house prices substantially increase, for many couples IHT will not be an issue as their combined estates will be within the ordinary nil rate band and the residence nil rate band and the transferable nil rate band and transferable residence nil rate band. However, various conditions have to be satisfied in order to preserve the residence nil rate band.

Use of the lifetime exemptions form IHT;

The family farm and farmhouses.

The advice to be given to clients retiring abroad.


N.B. There may not be time to consider all these topics in detail.
