A look at gifts and inheritance tax

image preview

The issue of inheritance and gift tax (CAT) is becoming more important to many people because of the reduction in the amount an individual can receive tax free. When an individual decides to transfer his/her assets to another person, either by gift or on their death, assets over a certain value will attract CAT. The current rate of tax is 25 per cent, there is speculation that it will increase in the upcoming budget.
