Inheritance tax bonus

Imagine if the estate of our late Queen (RIP) was subject to inheritance tax, without prerogatives or family trusts. What a bonus that would be for the country at a difficult time.

Yes, she did a good job for an exceptionally long time, but I don’t believe she or her heirs have ‘earned’ such a large slice of the nation’s wealth.

No thought at all there, so boring

Good point. The double standards and corruption in this country are hard to stomach.

Someone will try and say it’s different because it’s a royal estate, but you’re spot on, OP.

Would never have happened. Steps would have been taken years ago 're trusts etc. Read about the Duke of Westminster. £billions but locked away behind investments, trusts etc

Trusts pay inheritance tax on 10 year anniversary of setup … except those set up before 1974. Time for a change in the law (almost 50 years later) to treat everybody the same way.
