Inheritance Tax Interest on Late Payments Doubles this Year!


Interest rates on late payment of inheritance tax will rise to 6% from 6 January 2023. 

The equivalent figure exactly a year ago was 2.75%.

This rise may encourage earlier payments on account where the exact liability is under dispute, perhaps for valuations reasons, and where an election for the instalment basis under IHTA 1984 s 227 has been made.
