Adequate Increases?

Arerepparttar increases torepparttar 119142 inheritance tax threshold good enough? Should they have been increased further? It is certainly true that previous inheritance tax increases have not been so steep; usuallyrepparttar 119143 increases are made in line with current inflation rates. However, this Budget has seen an increase which is way above inflation.

Onrepparttar 119144 other hand,repparttar 119145 contrary argument is thatrepparttar 119146 high rise in house prices necessitated such an increase, and even this may not be enough. The Halifax Building Society calculated that hadrepparttar 119147 inheritance tax threshold increased in line with house price inflation overrepparttar 119148 last 10 years, thenrepparttar 119149 current threshold would be sitting at £390,000 - significantly less thanrepparttar 119150 figure announced by Gordon Brown.

Conclusion: Budget Blues

So was this a 'bad' budget' fromrepparttar 119151 inheritance tax point of view? Not entirely. Any increase inrepparttar 119152 Nil Rate Band is to be welcomed as it sets free some of those caught inrepparttar 119153 inheritance tax net. As Simon Massey (partner with chartered accountancy firm Menzies) told BBC News, "The increase torepparttar 119154 Inheritance Tax threshold is a long way above inflation and is very welcome...It is good to see something being done."

So whilstrepparttar 119155 increase may not exactly be in line withrepparttar 119156 current house price situation, it will certainly be a relief to many, and any increase is better than no increase at all.
