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.

investors and traders.
