Will planning in the era of the residence nil rate band »
As surely everybody knows by now, for deaths occurring after 5 April 2017 an additional IHT allowance is available in respect of a residence which the testator owns or has owned in the past. This is called the "residence nil rate band" (RNRB) and is given by an increase in the standard nil rate band available to the individual. Although the RNRB has also been referred to as the "main" residence nil rate band, this is incorrect. For a property to qualify under the RNRB legislation, it is sufficient for the property to have been a residence (i.e. not necessarily a main residence) of the deceased at some point.
