An Excerpt taken from the HMRC website.

It is advisable to get a valuation from a qualified and experienced professional valuer. HMRC’s IHT manual at paragraph 21041 makes this clear. For example it directs that where a valuation is qualified as being made “for probate purposes” or for “IHT purposes” HMRC will query as to whether the correct basis has been used.

Where IHT is payable after death, the personal representatives of the deceased must complete HMRC’s form 400. Supplemental IHT form 407 is specifically for household goods. This form breaks down into four parts /

  •     Jewellery, individual items valued at £500 or more to be detailed separately.
  •     Vehicles, boats and aircraft.
  •     Antiques, works of art or collections.
  •     Personal belongings, furniture, fixtures and fittings in a house.

1st Call provide clear and accurate probate valuations reports in accordance with HM Revenue and Customs guidelines.
