Inheritance Tax 2019/20 provides a clearly structured analysis of the major inheritance tax (IHT) provisions together with the tips and planning techniques needed to apply them successfully and to avoid potential pitfalls.

This essential guide to IHT helps you navigate progressively through the complexities of an increasingly difficult subject. It starts with the basic rules and principles before looking at topics in more depth. Whatever your level of expertise and experience, this book will be a valuable addition to your practice library.

This accessible reference guide has a user-friendly structure with 'signposts' at the beginning of each chapter to summarise key topics and 'focus points' throughout to highlight important issues. Numerous worked examples demonstrate how to apply the main principles in practice and all examples are listed in a table at the beginning for quick navigation.
