What are IHT435 and IHT436 forms?

IHT435 and IHT436 are forms used in the United Kingdom for the purposes of inheritance tax. These forms are used to report and pay any inheritance tax owed on the estate of a deceased person. These forms are used to claim the residence nil rate band (RNRB) against the estate of someone who has passed away. In this article, we will take a closer look at these forms, their purpose, and what information is required when completing them.

What is IHT435?

The IHT435 is an inheritance tax form used in conjunction with the main IHT400 return for deceased estates. It is required by HMRC when the personal representatives are claiming the residence nil rate band (RNRB) on behalf of the estate.

There are many different types of trusts, but they all have one thing in common – they are used to manage assets for the benefit of others.

When is IHT435 Required to claim RNRB

IHT435 is required when a trust is created that has a chargeable event. A chargeable event is an event that triggers an inheritance tax liability. Some examples of chargeable events include:

  • The creation of a trust that is not a bare trust.
  • The transfer of assets into a trust that is not a bare trust.
  • The addition of assets to a trust that is not a bare trust.
  • The termination of an interest in possession trust.

 

What Information is Required when Completing IHT435?

When completing IHT435, the following information is required:

  • Details of the trust, including the name, address, and date of creation.
  • Details of the settlor, including their name, address, and date of birth.
  • Details of the trustees, including their names and addresses.
  • Details of the beneficiaries, including their names and addresses.
  • Details of any transfers into the trust that have been made in the past seven years.
  • Details of any distributions from the trust that have been made in the past seven years.
  • Details of any assets held in the trust, including their value.

What is IHT436?

The IHT436 form is a document that is used to claim the transferable residence nil rate band.

Use this form to claim the transferable RNRB against the Inheritance Tax on the deceased’s estate if:

  • you’re claiming RNRB on this estate (you’ll also need to complete (form IHT345).
  • the deceased had a spouse or civil partner that died before them, and that spouse or civil partner either died:
    • before 6 April 2017
    • on or after 6 April 2017 without having used all of the RNRB available to them

The purpose of the IHT436 form is to enable the transfer of any unused TRNRB from the estate of the first person to die in a married or civil partnership couple to the estate of the surviving spouse or civil partner. The form is used to claim any unused TRNRB that was available to the deceased at the time of their death.

What Information is Required when Completing IHT436?

When completing IHT436, the following information is required:

  • Details of the deceased person, including their name, address, and date of birth.
  • Details of the executor, including their name and address.
  • Details of the assets held in the estate, including their value.
  • Details of any gifts that were made by the deceased person in the seven years before their death.
  • Details of any debts owed by the deceased person.
  • Details of any exemptions or reliefs that apply to the estate.
