Heritage Relief

In certain circumstances, the Government will accept works of national historical or architectural importance and land of natural beauty or scientific interest in lieu of Inheritance Tax.

In such cases, HMRC will determine what assets qualify for exemption from Inheritance Tax following advice from the government’s heritage advisors.

The Government has a limited budget every year to accept such gifts but in exceptional circumstances, such as the death in 2014 of Sir Winston Churchill’s last daughter, whose estate has offered a number of his paintings to the nation in lieu of Inheritance Tax, they will extend the budget.

If a gift to the nation in lieu of Inheritance Tax is something that your family may be interested in, then it is better to discuss such a gift in your lifetime with HM Revenue & Customs and if you have any queries here, then please do contact us on 01536 276300.
