Keeping this in view, what is a iht421 form?
When submitting the Inheritance Tax account to HMRC, a “probate summary” (form IHT421) will also need to be completed and submitted. This form provides a summary of the value of the Estate as well as the amount of Inheritance Tax being paid initially.
Subsequently, question is, what is the difference between iht205 and iht400? The IHT205 – The IHT 205 is used when there is no inheritance tax to be paid on an estate that's total value is less than the inheritance tax threshold of £325,000. The 205 in comparison to the IHT 400 is by far simpler, it doesn't ask for additional forms breaking down the value of assets like the 400 does.
Hereof, do all executors have to sign iht400?
The tax return, whichever one is used, must be signed by all the Executors or Administrators. The IHT 400 form plus any supplementary pages must then be sent to HM Revenue and Customs. If there is tax to pay then this must be settled before a stamped tax certificate can be issued.
Should I complete iht205?
If you do not need to get a grant of representation then you do not need to complete a form IHT205. For most estates there is no tax to pay and you will only need to fill in form IHT205(2011) to give brief details of the estate.
