What is considered a small inheritance?

When it comes to inheritance tax, there is no definitive answer as to what is considered a small estate. This is because the value of an estate that is subject to inheritance tax depends on several factors, including the relationship between the deceased and the beneficiary. However, in general terms, an inheritance below £325,000 is considered small and below the tax threshold.
