Welcome to our page relating to Heritage Relief.

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.

Covid19 Information

WE ARE STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS HOWEVER, OUR FRONT DOORS WILL BE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. For us all to be as safe as possible, our preference will be to interact with clients by telephone, email and/or zoom meetings ONLY. We would ask that if you have to drop any papers off at our offices, you use our Post Box unless you need anything copying, in those cases please knock the door and one of our receptionists will deal with you at the front door but only if you are wearing protective face coverings. If you require further assistance then a member from the relevant department will telephone you thereafter to discuss. We hope you understand that this is to safeguard you, our staff and to limit as much contact as possible. We may take a little longer to respond to enquiries and deal with matters. Please bear with us. FOR MORE INFORMATION CLICK THE BUTTON BELOW.
