Re: Going LTD

If you can't afford an accountant you probably shouldn't be transferring to a limited company unless you have experience preparing formal accounts as it requires the preparation of statutory accounts in a particular format, tax returns for the company, personal tax returns recognising the income. Ho...

Re: BICT

If you sell them, you pay CGT and if you then acquire flats then you'll have an SDLT charge on the purchases. Is that going to put you in a better position than just holding the HMOs (I appreciate it's not all about the finances and HMOs are hard work)? Transferring the properties into a company wou...

Re: Transferring property into sons name

If your father transfers the property to you as a gift then this will trigger capital gains tax on the gain since he has owned it, with tax at 18/28% (after annual exemption). If he does this before 6 April he will have until Jan 2021 to pay the tax, if he does it on or after 6 April he will have to...

Re: RNRB and Pecuniary gifts

Where part of the property is sold in order to settle the pecuniary legacy the estate will not benefit from the RNRB; the property is not specifically left to a direct descendent. The property must be “closely inherited” ie the property must pass under a will or intestacy to the deceased’s lineal d...

Re: RNRB and Pecuniary gifts

Just to be difficult (or perhaps to simply the matter) is there a need to have specific pecuniary legacies if the estate is simply being split between the 5 children/grandchildren? Just appoint a percentage to each of them and there's no fear of the RNRB being lost as there isn't this complication. ...

Re: RNRB and Pecuniary gifts

HMRC Guidance here seems to infer that this should be ok: https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/inheritance-tax-manual/ihtm46033 Sale of the residence post-death The actual residence does not have to end up in the hands of the deceased’s direct descendants. An estate could still be eligible for t...

Re: IHT

There's two elements to consider, the first being the probate application and the second being the IHT forms. The first question to identify is whether you need to apply for probate at all. If their only assets were joint bank accounts and joint property then these will pass automatically to the sur...

Re: IHT allowances

The first thing to identify is what her Will says. If the Will passes the assets to the spouse then this will already be exempt and then allow the use of the husbands allowance. If the assets pass to anyone else (her children I would assume) then there is an option to chose to vary the will to pass ...

Re: RNRB and Pecuniary gifts

As long as your direct descendent inherit the house or the proceeds of sale from the house then you will qualify for the RNRB (assuming your estate isn't affected by the taper after £2m). This means that if, for example, you left a pecuniary legacy of £100,000 to your daughter and there wasn't cash ...
