15th October 2022

The UK Government's tax authority has released its annual Inheritance Tax (IHT) receipts, with latest figures from HM Revenue and Customs showing that it raised £2.9 billion ($3.3 billion) in IHT receipts over the period April to the end of August 2022. 

An increase of £300 million from the same period the year prior. The rise and fall in revenues can highlight whether measure to mitigate the impact of IHT work or not; they also reflect changes to asset values - often a hot political issue as more people get dragged into the tax net.
