This calculator grosses up legacies at different rates.
Use the calculator for legacies:
at the standard rate of Inheritance Tax of 40%
where the estate is paying the reduced rate of Inheritance Tax at 36% because at least 10% of the estate has been left to charity
which qualify for an additional threshold, sometimes known as the residence nil rate band (RNRB)
