Rates and threshold

There are no changes to IHT rates. As previously announced, the nil rate threshold rose on 6 April 2009 to gifts of up to £325,000.

Agricultural property

A 100% relief from IHT applies to the agricultural value of agricultural property. Up to now, the relief has only been available for land situated in the UK. From 22 April 2009, land anywhere in the European Economic Area can qualify. It will also be possible to claim the relief retrospectively where a charge arose on a transfer, including a death, from 22 April 2003. Claimants will have at least a year from 22 April 2009 to ask for a refund.
