Penalties for late payment of income tax and late filing
A novel new tax break due to come in from 6 April 2012 attempts to encourage you to pass at least 10% of your estate on death to a charity (or charities). If that happens the rate of inheritance tax on the rest of your estate reduces from the normal 40% to 36%.
Whether this is a big enough carrot for you to pick up is obviously a personal matter and we will be pleased to advise on exactly how it all works in your particular circumstances.
