You should be aware that as a result of recent changes, as from 5th April 2012, if you leave 10% or more of your estate to charity, the rest of your estate will benefit from a 10% reduction in Inheritance Tax that would otherwise be payable. The rules regarding Inheritance Tax are different between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We suggest you consult your legal advisor regarding IHT benefits or contact Steele Rose & Co, and tell them that you are a Member of the Forces Pension Society.
