Inheritance tax , where do I pay

Postby utlark » Tue May 07, 2019 8:15 pm

Hi,
I am a German Citizen also have British Citizen ship, living and working in Britain since 1989.

I am getting an inheritance from my parents, who died in Germany and all assets are in Germany.
Can I pay inheritance tax in Germany?
Do I need to inform HMRC once I know the amounts?

Please any thought on this?
Thank you
Ute

I assume your parents are not UK domiciled. In which case you have no exposure to UK inheritance tax. Also no need to report any inheritances to UK Revenue.

Yes, my parents were always living and working in Germany.
