Inheritance Tax Thresholds
The Inheritance Tax threshold (or  nil rate band ) is the amount up to which an estate will have no Inheritance Tax to pay.

If the estate - including any assets held in trust and gifts made within seven years of death - is more than the threshold, Inheritance Tax will be due at 40 per cent on the amount over the nil rate band.

This table shows the different thresholds in use for deaths going back to 2000.

In the Budget 2011 it was announced that from April 2012, a reduced rate of IHT of 36% will be introduced where 10% or more of the net estate is left to charity.
