Changes to the filing & payment date on relevant property trusts
The information in guide IHT113 on filing and payment dates is incorrect for events arising on or after 6 April 2014. HM Revenue & Customs will update this guide as soon as possible.
The changes apply to all chargeable events arising on relevant property trusts on or after 6 April 2014.
When an event, on which Inheritance Tax (IHT) is payable, takes place on a relevant property trust, the date for filing the IHT return and paying the tax due has been changed to 6 months after the end of the month in which the charge arose. The change in the:
- filing date will affect all relevant property trusts
- payment date will affect relevant property trusts where the charge to IHT arises between 6 April and 30 September, where previously, the payment date was 30 April in the following year
For example, if the chargeable event takes place on 10 May 2014, the filing and payment date is 30 November 2014.
These changes were made as part of Finance Act 2014.
