Inheritance Tax is paid at the rate of 40% on the amount that exceeds this threshold. So, out of every £1 over the threshold your beneficiaries will only keep 60p, 40p will go to Her Majesties Revenue and Customs.
Gifts to charities are generally exempt from Inheritance Tax. If you leave a charitable gift it will be deducted from your estate before the Inheritance Tax liability is calculated.
If you estimate your estate to be liable to IHT then have you made any gifts? As these could be liable to tax upon your death.
In the majority of cases when an individual is ill, they are able to talk to their doctor and mutually reach a decision about their treatment. It is a vital point of law that a mentally competent adult has to consent to medical treatment; it cannot be forced upon them.
However, there are times where an individual maybe unable to communicate their wishes to their doctor or a medical team. For example, being unconscious or they are lacking the mental capacity to be able to agree or disagree to any treatment that maybe rendered.
