RNRB - What the papers say

Share this article:



Beware the “man at a dinner party” who passes on tax advice – or the daily papers. One national paper recently produced an article helpfully alerting readers to the advantages of the Residence Nil Rate Band (RNRB). It referred to it being available where a house is left to children via “partners”, which implies unmarried partners (or the so-called common law spouse). Unfortunately for anyone relying on the information without specialist advice (yes, some people do), the allowance can only be used if it is a registered civil partner, or spouse. Just one little word, but a significant difference for your significant other! The RNRB will soon be worth up to £140,000 in tax savings.
