IHTA84/S239(4) is amended by the insertion of a new paragraph (aa) which says that where too little IHT has been paid on the second death, because too great an increase in the nil rate band was allowed, the accountable persons remain liable for paying any additional tax that is due. A new paragraph has also been included in SL124A to disapply the clearance where it is subsequently shown that too much nil rate band has been transferred.
