If your estate is worth more than £325,000 then Inheritance Tax is currently paid to the government at a rate of 40%. Most gifts left to RBST are exempt from Inheritance Tax because we are a charity. The 40% rate on your estate can be reduced for people who leave legacies to charities. To find out more about Inheritance Tax, please contact your Solicitor or visit the Government website https://www.gov.uk/inheritance-tax
