HC Deb 10 June 1998 vol 313 c586W
Mr. Derek Twigg

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to raise the limit below which delivery of an inheritance tax account is not required for administering a deceased person's estate. [45539]

Dawn Primarolo

The Inland Revenue has today laid Regulations increasing the limit from £180,000 to £200,000. The increased limit will come into operation on 1 July 1998, for estates of persons dying on or after 6 April 1998. It will simplify the administration of some 5,000 estates.
