It requires overseas incorporated legal entities that own, or seek to acquire, land or property in the UK, to register and provide information on their beneficial owners and/or managing officers.  Once registered, they must also keep the register up to date on an annual basis.  There are significant financial and criminal penalties for not complying with either the initial registration or subsequent annual update.

News / Changes to probate application process and submission of inheritance tax accounts for deaths on or after 1 January 2022

28-01-2022 / Private Client & Tax, Tax

On 1 January 2022, The Inheritance Tax (Delivery of Accounts) (Excepted Estates) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 came into effect. They extended the 2004 Regulations so that the majority of non-taxpaying estates are no longer required to complete IHT forms in cases where a grant is required. The new Regulations serve to minimise the administrative burdens imposed on those dealing with IHT by reducing the reporting requirements for excepted estates and limiting the circumstances in which full inheritance tax accounts must be delivered to HMRC. The new Regulations, however, will only apply to estates or deaths that occur on or after 1 January 2022.
