  • Understand the basic concepts of IHT 
  • Demonstrate how to mitigate your IHT exposure and protect your family 
  • Awareness of available reliefs and exemptions 


IHT can take up to 40% of your family's rightful inheritance and can lead to the breakup of a successful property business. Early planning is the key to protecting your family and preserving your business for the next generation. The course will explain the theory behind IHT and the trainer will use various worked examples to illustrate how it is calculated and the level of exposure landlords have to the tax. You will learn about the reliefs and exemptions you need to be aware of and gain knowledge on the workings of IHT, along with hints and tips for reducing your family’s eventual tax bill. 

This training course qualifies for 2 continuous professional development (CPD) points which can help towards or maintain your accreditation with the NRLA. If you are interested in becoming an accredited landlord with the NRLA, CPD points are necessary to achieve that status.
