Watch this webinar where Barry Foster takes a detailed look at the residence nil rate band using examples and case studies throughout. In Part 1 Barry examines the main provisions of the residence nil rate band legislation, such as what constitutes a qualifying residential interest and a direct descendant. He will consider how tapering of the RNRB works and look at some planning opportunities to mitigate tapering.

Please note that the Residence Nil Rate Band (RNRB) was introduced on a phased basis as follows;

  • £100,000 for the tax year 2017/18;
  • £125,000 for the tax year 2018/19;
  • £150,000 for the tax year 2019/20;
  • £175,000 for the tax year 2020/21

This allowance was due to be increased annually in line with CPI (Consumer Price Index) thereafter. Similarly, the standard IHT nil rate band of £325,000 was also due to be increased by CPI annually effective from 2021/22. Since recording this webinar, the Government has frozen both the RNRB at £175,000 and the standard IHT allowance of £325,000 until 5 April 2026.
