Amend Inheritance tax estate report

Incorrect value stated

Didn't find your answer?

I have completed an inheritance tax estate report and logged it with HMRC as well as changed the land register for a house valued at £300k.  

It turns out the house should have been valued at £350k over the standard £325k threshold for IHT to be due. 

However, the residence nil rate band of £100k would have been avalaible so no IHT would still be payable.  I am not sure what I need to amend and with who as I would like the value reflected correctly with HMRC incase of any future sales and the land register.  As no IHT would still not be due, do i even need to inform HMRC?

Can i get the land registry to show the correct value of £350k based on the date the register was changed in April 2018 or will it only be changed now to say value amended in February 2019 to £350k.  Ideally I obviously only want it to show the value in April 2018 as £350k which it should have been.  Unfortunately it was undervalued at the time.

If you want HMRC to know the right number, doesn't it stand to reason that you should tell them what it is?
