total IHT allowance

Postby rmim » Thu Oct 12, 2023 7:32 pm

HI All,

I'm a little confused because spouse 1 passed away when the RNBR was 150k (4.March.2020) and spouse 2 passed away when the RNBR was 175k (7.October.2023)

I think I have read that spouse 1 RNBR will be raised to that of spouse 2. Is that correct?

1. Family house £550,000
2. Second house £550,000
3. money in bank £100,000
(minus debts)

child will inherit. (None of the NBR or RNBR was used before as everything went to spouse 2)

Am I correct in saying the total IHT allowance will be 1million or 975k?
