The Budget – 8th July 2015
An additional nil-rate band was applied yesterday as a result of the Budget. It applies when a property is bequeathed to a beneficiary following the owner’s death. This nil-rate band will be £100,000.00 in 2017 to 2018, £125,000.00 in 2018 to 2019, £150,000.00 in 2019 to 2020, and £175,000.00 in 2020 to 2021.
It will then increase in line with the Consumer Price Index from 2021 to 2022 onwards. Any unused nil-rate band will be transferred to a surviving spouse or to a civil partner. It will also be available when a person downsizes or ceases to own a home on or after 8th July 2015 and assets of an equivalent value, up to the value of the additional nil-rate band, are passed on death to direct descendants/beneficiaries..
