'Reform of inheritance tax' report
In January 2020 the APPG produced a ‘Reform of inheritance tax’ report with two major recommendations for the government to reform the current inheritance tax regime.
Interim recommendations May 2019
In May 2019 the APPG produced a paper with some interim recommendations which were submitted to the Office of Tax Simplification in relation to simplifying inheritance tax. The recommendations proposed a number of ways in which certain aspects of the current inheritance regime could either be removed or altered to remedy the current complexities. The paper was also copied to the Chancellor Philip Hammond who sent a letter in response on 24 May 2019. The APPG is currently working on a more comprehensive paper which it will submit to the Government in October 2019.
