Changes to the Inheritance Tax system could have far-reaching implications for homeowners
Recent post-Budget analysis may have concentrated on the U-turn over National Insurance for the self-employed, but another tax change introduced on 6 April 2017 could have far-reaching implications for homeowners.

This tax-free allowance is set to rise to £1 million by 2020.

But what are the thresholds, rates and allowances? Here is our guide to Inheritance Tax.
