Tax news in brief


Published: 28 Jul 2021 Update History

Highlights from the broader tax news week ending 28 July, which includes the opportunity to attend a free webinar from the Office of Tax Simplification updating on its work and confirmation from HMRC of which inheritance tax forms are not available online.

Ordering non-digital IHT forms

While the majority of forms relating to inheritance tax (IHT) are available online via gov.uk, HMRC has confirmed six forms for which copies must be ordered by calling the IHT general enquiries helpline. These include applications for double probate or grant de bonis non (CAP A5C and CAP A5N), as well as for deaths before 18 March 1986 (CAP 200 and CAP 201), deaths before 13 March 1975 (A 12) and deaths before 13 March 1974 (A 13).
