Editor’s LETTER

It’s our 75th issue (you might be able to tell from the cover...) we’ve had a great time bringing BN5 to you every month, thank you to everyone who has called us with stories and ideas for articles. This month we also introduce our new BN5 logo on the front cover, this will be used on our website which we’ll be bringing to you very soon. We celebrate the great Sussex foodies in our article on page 26, this month the Sussex Food & Drink Award nominations have been announced and it’s great to see how many of the nominees are local businesses, retailers, restaurants and producers. You can vote for your favourites and make sure they get some recognition for their hard work. The Lions Club have been meeting in The George for many years and have been a mainstay of local fundraising for good causes. They are a good bunch who enjoy a vibrant social scene as well as raising some essential funds for local and national charities. Get involved if you have an hour or two to spare, they’d love to hear from you. Our Facebook page is up and running, thank you to everyone who has ‘liked’ us so far. Please do come over and say hi - www.facebook.com/ bn5magazine I hope you get to enjoy some October walks, with the leaves turning, woodsmoke and beautiful sunsets, Sussex is surely the best place to live. Best wishes

Copy deadline for any advertisement or editorial submission for the November 12 issue of BN5 magazine is Friday 5 October. For editorial submissions email Emma Osman editor@bn5magazine.co.uk or just call us for a chat on 01273 494002.

Local interest | OCTOBER 2012

BN5 at 75! W e just can’t believe this is our 75th issue! It seems like yesterday that we were celebrating our 50th issue, back in September 2010. Then we celebrated by finding 5 local heroes who were given £50 vouchers to spend in the village. Jackie and Brian Griffiths were winners for being great neighbours; Carolyn Phillips for her work for St Barnabas in Henfield; Debbie Slaughter for her tireless work at the Youth Club; Darren and Donna Angood for all their weekends spent coaching Henfield football juniors; and our local postie Trevor Simmons for being an all-round good egg and HART responder. We are still struck by the acts of kindness given by local people and their incredible achievements for charity and for the community.

Since I launched the magazine back in 2005 I have met some lovely people and seen lots of changes in the village. Some exciting new businesses have appeared in the High Street and continue to thrive. It’s a tough time to be a retailer but Henfield has always, and continues, to have a bustling high street; thanks to local people using the shops and people from surrounding villages visiting us. The Community Partnership and Parish Council have been working very hard with retailers to keep the high street looking great and encouraging local trade. Although, it would be nice if we could fill up our cars... We’ve met some interesting characters through BN5

and have loved sharing their stories with you. From Woodmancote’s horror writer James Herbert, who graced our October 10 cover (we had requests from all over the world for copies of the magazine, our furthest mail-out was to New Zealand – James’s fans have a way of finding out when he’s been written about!) to Etienne Minost, who flew for the Free French during WWII. Sadly Etienne passed away last year, but the story of his bravery and modesty touched many readers. We’ve seen wedding fairs and open gardens, the Henfield Show, Jubilee and Royal Wedding celebrations, school sports days and Henfield remembrance, which sees more and more people showing their respects at the War Memorial each year. Local people have done extraordinary things for charity and things dear to their heart – not least the amazing efforts of the 777 team earlier this year when Sam, Tim and Malcolm ran seven treadmill marathons in seven days. Countless other individuals and businesses took part, running full and part marathons in teams. They raised £24,000 for Henfield Leisure Centre and Clic Sargent childhood leukemia charity. In February 2010 we launched a sister publication called thirteen8 magazine, covering the Partridge Green & Cowfold areas. It’s allowed us to expand into a new postcode area and there has been a real synergy between the two, very different, publications.

Henfield GARDEN CLUB The last of our summer outings by coach have now taken place, although I do obviously use the word ‘summer’ very loosely!

Anyone who has an email account for even a short period of time will have received an email from the Crown Prince of Nigeria who needs to store 10 million US Dollars and simply needs your bank details to transfer the money. Most people realise this is a scam, it is pretty obvious and we all know (hopefully!) not to give over our bank details to a complete stranger. Unfortunately, a new scam tactic is going around which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as obvious. It starts simply, a phone call from an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of a well-known company such as Microsoft or Apple. They inform you that there is a problem with your computer and they are calling to help you fix it and try to get you to edit settings or download software to solve the problem... These people are NOT trying to fix a problem and you should never follow their instructions. They have no idea you even have a computer unless you tell them. Their aim is to gain control of your computer by making you do things whilst they are on the phone. If you are concerned that there is a problem with your computer contact a computer support company to get their advice. So the obvious question remains, what happens if you DO follow their instructions? Well, there are a couple of options: 1) They will install a program that records your passwords and account details. 2) A â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;freeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; piece of software will be installed and after 30 days you will have to buy the full version. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, your computer will stop working correctly. 3) Software is downloaded that makes your computer distribute a virus without your knowledge that could potentially link you to criminal activity. To summarise; unless you are expecting a phone call from a computer company do not follow any instructions or give any password or account details over. Instead, call a friend / relative with computer knowledge or contact a company such as Alternative Computers and Training (01273 491110 or email advice@altct. co.uk)to get advice. Adam Simmonds

Henfield turned out in force at the Public Inquiry in Horsham to determine whether or not outline planning permission should be granted for the erection of 102 dwellings on the field behind Manor Close. Although Horsham District Council (HDC) chose not to be represented, members from Henfield Parish Council, Community Partnership, HOPS (Henfield’s Own Preservation Society) Brian O’Connell our District Councillor and CPRE all took the stand to argue against the proposed development. The appointed Planning Inspector ensured all parties were given the opportunity to state their case and the Henfield team answered questions put by both the Inspector and the top ranking QC engaged by the developer. The Planning Inquiry was the result of HDC not determining the original application within statutory timescales and would have been withdrawn by the developer if the Planning Committee had subsequently approved an identical application submitted at the July meeting. HDC turned down the second application on the grounds of Sustainability but still did not contest the Appeal. It was left to the residents of Henfield to explain why this proposed development should not be built. The Planning Inspector indicated that we will have to wait for up to seven weeks before the outcome of the Appeal is known.

Volunteers are currently being trained to carry out river bank surveys. As always, more volunteers are much needed.

OCTOBER 2012 | News Cantatrice

Henfield Parish Council

Who would have thought that a little place like Steyning would have a ladies choir that boasts 100 members with a sister choir in Horsham of 50? Cantatrice (meaning women singers) began back in 2004 when 90 singers crammed into the local church hall. We rapidly moved to our home base, the Steyning Centre where you can still hear us rehearsing every Friday morning during term time. A sister choir in Horsham began three months later and this continues to grow. Local musician Zoe Peate, brought to the choir a lifetime of singing experience, choral knowledge and loads of enthusiasm! Our repertoire is still as varied as when we began, ranging from sacred items to jazz and musicals, the venues as diverse as Chichester Festival Theatre to Steyningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Live Lounge in the old Rifle Range, The Carfax, Horsham - not to mention a few wins at competitive festivals! On Friday 19 October at 7.30pm, Cantatrice, along with Divas Undaunted, Songbirds and full orchestra perform the stirring work â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Adiemusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Karl Jenkins under the direction of Steve Dummer. With 200 voices filling The Hawth it will be an exciting evening as not only will they sing Adiemus but also Borodinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Polovstian Dances, All that Jazz, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, the Witches scene from Verdiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Macbeth, With a Little Help From My Friends and more.

Often it is part of a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bigger sceneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Henfield is a very safe place to live with low levels of crime and anti-social behaviour. However Council becomes aware of a fair number of incidences which go un-reported and as Sussex Police, at least in part, allocate resources to the village based on the level of crime and anti-social behaviour they are aware of, Henfield may well be losing out on the level of policing it should receive. This problem was particularly evident in the latter part of August with un-reported incidences occurring at a number of locations around the village. With the darker evenings approaching failed street lights become more of a nuisance. Residents can report failed lights (or lights on during daytime) to the maintenance contractor Southern Electric directly by telephone 0800 048 2435 or via the link on Henfield Parish Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own website www.henfield.gov.uk - Official Links â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Street Light Fault Reports. Most street lights have a number recorded on the lighting column and this information will be required when the fault is reported.

Osprey over Woods Mill At last, after 27 years of working for the Sussex Wildlife Trust at Woods Mill Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finally been rewarded with a wonderful view of an osprey circling over the lake. Thanks to Warden Ryan Greaves rushing in to tell me, just about managing to get the words out while trying to catch his breath, I got to see the bird, the first record for the reserve. In the past one has been seen flying high over Woods Mill but this was the first serious visit, eyeing up the very tempting carp that we have cruising in the shallows. It was around long enough for all my colleagues to come out and get a good view as well, all of us hoping for a spectacular dive into the lake and denuding it of one startled carp but sadly that did not happen. It might however, come back at a quieter time and help itself to a fish supper. An osprey has been reported fishing on the River Adur for the last week and it may well have been that individual that has strayed a bit further, but it could have also been a bird making itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way back from Scotland and calling in to have a good feed before making the arduous journey down to West Africa where it will spend the winter. Penny Green thought it might have a radio tag, which, if that is the case, we can find out who it is and from where it originated. There are a few ospreys being regularly seen in Sussex at the moment. Both Arlington and Weir Wood Reservoirs have entertained single birds for much of the summer while one has taken up temporary residence down in Thorney Island, Chichester Harbour. Eventually though, they will depart across the channel to carry on their southwards migration. Mike Russell, Sussex Wildlife Trust

Rye Farm Rocked! Our Rye Farm Rocks event back in June raised £7,500 for the Teenage Cancer Trust South East Appeal. Can we thank all of you that came along and supported us on the evening, the feedback we received was all very positive. We have extended our thanks to the Acts (both musical and comical) for their sterling contribution from start to finish, the Booth’s for the very generous use of their farm and home and of course the Henfield BP Guild who provided the catering. This is a truly stunning figure that far exceeded our expectations - so again, thank you all for coming!

Busy Bees support the Rockinghorse Appeal Busy Bees Playgroup were delighted to be able to hand over a cheque for £200 to the Rockinghorse Appeal. They had raised the money by doing a Sponsored walk around the Kingsfield during the summer term. Playgroup Manager Gillian Otsuka thanked the parents and the 2, 3 and 4 year olds for their support and said “It is great to be able to support a local children’s charity in this enjoyable way”.

Calling all squash players - we are UNSQUASHABLE!

12 years ago the Henfield Squash club was a thriving club with leagues, teams, coaching, competitions and social events. The teenage section particularly thrived and one of our girls, Jenna Gates, went on to be U18 British champion. Then we lost a few key people and the club ceased to exist. It was such fun to be part of, for adults and children alike, and such an asset to the village, that we have decided to revive it. We have set up a club session on Thursday evenings, 7-9pm, at Henfield Leisure Centre, when you can pay £3 and drop in and play whoever is there. This is great value as the courts are currently £6 per hour to hire. If we get enough interest, we can expand it, do some coaching and enter some teams again. Court one has been repaired so both courts are now ready to go. Come and join us for our taster night on Thursday 4 October – there will be cake! Players of all ages and standards welcome. There are two of us organising this, so we would need more help to run the club. E-mail me at rk@roboblob. co.uk if you would like to find out more, have ideas, or would like to help.

News | OCTOBER 2012 Henfield Theatre Company Our Autumn play is The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists by Howard Brenton, based on the novel by Robert Tressell. Directed by Paul Woodcock, this play is the semi-autobiographical story of a group of painters and decorators working in Hastings during the first decade of the twentieth century. The workers see the world through their traditional political views and never imagine that they can influence their own lives or circumstances. When socialist Frank Owen joins them, the workers begin to understand the impact that socialism could have on their lives. This play is full of gentle humour, lessons in life and big, bad bosses. Production dates are 18-20 October starting at 7.45pm in The Henfield Hall. Pre-booking flyers will be available in early September from Henfield Furnishings (Box office 01273 490080), Henfield Hall and the Library. Tickets £6.00 & £8.00.

BN5 BIRDS Here we are at the end of the summer. Summer? 2012 is now officially the wettest summer in 100 years – miserable for us but devastating for our breeding birds. Low temperatures, prolonged wet weather and high winds coincided with the time when many birds were hatching. They are at their most vulnerable when very young, easily succumbing to the cold, or to starvation if not fed very regularly. The weather meant that it was unusually difficult for the parent birds to find insect food to feed their young chicks. This also often meant that both parents had to leave the nest to find food, exposing the chicks to the cold. In general, most garden birds suffered poor breeding success and few of the early nesters like blackbirds and robins managed to raise any young in their first brood. Blackbirds continued nesting into July with a third brood, attempting to make up for earlier losses. Single brooders like blue tits did less well in some places depending on the date their eggs hatched. So, it’s been a poor year for breeding birds in Henfield, but all is not lost. Birds have evolved to cope with fluctuations in the weather, and provided we do not get too many bad years in a row, they will bounce back. After all, 2010 and 2011 were very good years for birds, so there’s nothing to worry about yet. Over the coming months birds will be migrating from their breeding grounds north of Britain to spend their winter holidays with us. Birds such as field fares, grey and chestnut thrush sized birds, and redwings (thrush-like birds with a pale eye stripe and a red underwing), flock together and are regular visitors to Henfield. Henfield Birdwatch has organised a talk at 7.30pm on Friday 23 November at Henfield Hall, by Dylan Walker on ‘The Birds and Whales of the Macronesian Islands’ (the Canaries, Azores and Madeira). Non-members are welcome to attend and will be charged £3 each. Neil Fletcher and Debbie Colgate

OCTOBER 2012 | News routine reviews for chronic illness, leaving us GPs to deal with more complex problems. The pharmacist or NHS Direct can also give advice. We are also recruiting for a new full-time partner to replace Dr Hoey who was part time, to try and relieve some of the pressure on the partners. We are incredibly lucky to live in Henfield. There is community spirit everywhere – just look through BN5! We have HART, which is amazing, not to mention the Link cars, Friends of the medical practice, BP Guild, various clubs, and many wonderful carers in the village quietly working away. Being part of a thriving community and getting involved in one of the many activities, or helping neighbours and friends is one of the most powerful ways to maintain your health. If you can be part of the community and build up your selfesteem and self-confidence it has a positive effect on your health – don’t ask me how it works but it does! Spirituality has also been shown to have a similar effect. Just get involved!

New Executive Partner at Henfield Medical Practice On 1 July 2012, Dr Karen Crawford Clarke took over as Executive Partner at Henfield Medical Practice and the branch surgery at Wood Lawn in Partridge Green. Karen explains more. I have been a GP in Henfield for 17 years now and I can reflect on the many changes in General Practice during that time. The medical centre just keeps expanding in staff numbers and size to try and keep pace with the change but the basic job of caring for our patients has stayed the same and we focus on that as the most important part of our work - it keeps us going! We are a happy but extremely hard-working team. General Practice is recognised as the central point of care in the NHS. More and more the trend is for care to be given by your GP at the surgery rather than in hospitals. We offer a range of clinics for different conditions including asthma, diabetes, minor surgery, physiotherapy, counselling and stop-smoking clinics. We are also focusing much more on preventing disease such as strokes and heart attacks, and that requires patients to attend for blood tests and medication check-ups more often. Patients are also more informed from the media, sometimes showing us articles and wanting to have an informed discussion about their care - and quite right too! All this has led to an enormous increase in demand for appointments, in fact three times the demand of 17 years ago. I know you are all getting frustrated at not being able to make appointments with your own doctor, and this is a common cry across the country. We pride ourselves in the fact that we have held onto personal lists, (each patient having a nominated GP) where many other practices have abandoned them. The only way to make personal lists work is if we have the flexibility of using our excellent practice nurses, GP registrar doctors, health care assistants and PAs to deal with more minor and short-lived problems, and

KAREN’S VISION “My vision is for our practice to be a wonderful place to work, where all the team feels valued and fulfil their potential. A practice that delivers appropriate, safe, health care to our patients, with continuity of care where appropriate and good communication between team members. I would like our practice to be a Beacon for General Practice in the country.”

Henfield Lions -

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Community is what we make itâ&#x20AC;?

T

he Lions Club International is a truly global organisation with 1.35 million members in 46,000 clubs in 207 different countries, all active in local community projects. From an astonishing range of backgrounds and walks of life, all Lions have the same thing in common â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help people less fortunate than themselves. The Henfield and District Lions have another aim as well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to have fun whilst fundraising!

The Henfield and District Lions are a part of Lions Club International and they are a friendly and welcoming group of people, raising money for good causes both locally and further afield. During this past year they have fundraised for the Henfield Youth Club (raising ÂŁ800 on Race Night alone), and carried out a street collection for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Other local organisations that have benefited from the

Lions generosity of the past few years include: Henfield U14â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Football Team, HART, St Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Primary School (Henfield), Partridge Green Playgroup, Henfield Guides, Sight First, Worthing & Shoreham Hospitals, Cowfold Scout group, Henfield Young Cricketers and Henfield Leisure Centre. The Henfield Lions hold a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meeting at the George on the High Street on every first Wednesday of the month to discuss fundraising activities, donations of funds, membership issues, correspondence and social activities. Fundraising events often include the traditional village coffee mornings (their bacon sandwiches freshly cooked to order always sell well!), jumble sales and tin rattling. However it is their popular Race Night, held once a year, which is their main fundraiser. Usually held in March, they invite another

OCTOBER 2012 | Charity

4Sight -

supporting blind and partially sighted people

S

ight loss affects everything in life – can you imagine not being able to make a cup of tea without fear of burning yourself or cross the road without worrying you may be knocked over? The charity 4Sight has been supporting blind and partially sighted people in West Sussex for 91 years this month. We talked to Colin and Nina Major who run the Henfield 4Sight club to find out more.

ham, Crawley and Burgess Hill) that provide free information and advice, as well as the opportunity to purchase a range of equipment such as video magnifiers, big button phones (both mobile and land line), talking clocks or watches and large print computer keyboards. 4sight employs Sight Care Advisors who work from local hospital eye clinics. The Advisors are trained nurses who carry out low vision assessments and provide valuable assistance to those diagnosed with sight impairment, from initial diagnosis and on an ongoing basis. They also provide a telephone based advice service. By being based in hospitals, the Advisors are able to keep up-to-date with the latest treatments in eye care. In addition to access to its free services, 4Sight offers its members additional services including: telephone support from a Contact Officer and ‘try before you buy’ on most equipment available from the resource centres. For an additional fee members can also access low vision assessments, Contact Officer support in the home, an audio library (either tape or cd) and a weekly large print puzzle service. 4Sight employs a small number of staff but relies heavily on its 450 volunteers, like Colin and Nina, who help provide the various services. The charity is largely self-funded, through donations, community events, commercial activities (including a charity shop in Bognor Regis) and the support of trusts, foundations and local authorities. The Henfield 4Sight club meets at the Day Centre on Hewitts on the last Thursday of every month. It’s a good opportunity for members to share their experiences of sight loss over a cup of tea or coffee and perhaps take part in some gentle chair exercise or a game of bingo using tactile dominoes.

The Henfield group is small, friendly and welcoming. The week of our visit there was a special guest – the local 4Sight volunteer coordinator, Kirsty. Kirsty is responsible for recruiting and supporting the 450 volunteers in West Sussex who are the lifeblood of the organisation. As such her job takes her all over the county, meeting groups like Henfield, explaining how 4Sight can help them. The job is interesting and has its own challenges, partly because Kirsty was registered blind 15 years ago with a genetic form of macular degeneration. She relies mainly on public transport to meet the groups, which as we all know, can be hit and miss in rural areas. Kirsty appreciates and experiences the day to day challenges that degenerating sight throws up, which puts her in an ideal place to give advice and encouragement to those who have just found themselves in such a predicament. The origins of 4sight date back to October 1921 with the creation of the West Sussex Association for the Blind – a name that still survives today. The main aim of the charity is to improve the lives of blind and partially sighted people by providing advice and practical support. They enable people to: adjust to sight loss; make the best use of low vision; combat social isolation; access appropriate information and advice; maintain independence; participate actively in their communities and family life; and make informed choices about their own health and wellbeing. The charity is based in Bognor Regis with 40 clubs across the county with approximately 500 members. For more information on 4Sight or to join one of the 4Sight It also has four resource centres (in Bognor, Shore- club meetings in Henfield, call Nina on 01273 453000.

Sussex achievers pass baton to new recruit

wenty-three-year-olds Hannah Parbery and Tom Rogers, both former students from the University of Brighton, are now qualified financial planners after two years work on Nsure’s graduate trainee programme.

Hannah and Tom have each passed ten exams in the last two years as well as gaining onthe-job experience looking after Nsure’s clients. “I am pleased to have progressed so quickly in achieving my Diploma in Financial Planning,” said Hannah. “The coaching and guidance I have received have been essential to my success and I now look forward to meeting clients face to face and beginning an adviser role.” Tom added; “I feel I have gained lots of technical knowledge, as well as personal skills, over the past two years, and am now feeling excited about starting to advise clients.” Hannah and Tom have now passed the graduate trainee baton to Lucy Clohesy, who graduated from University of Brighton in July with a Business Management degree. Lucy from Hove said “It is exciting to start working at such a well-established and respected company. With all the support I have had from everyone here already, I can’t wait to start the journey towards becoming an adviser.” Tony Cohen, Nsure’s Managing Director, is delighted with the success of the trainee programme. He said “Hannah and Tom’s excellent progress has proven to be a sound investment decision by our business and we look forward to Lucy progressing in their footsteps.” Faye Brown, Alumni Manger at the University of Brighton said, “We are always thrilled to learn of the success of our alumni and are keen to continue to work with Nsure to expand their trainee programme and recommend suitable graduates for the programme.”

Worthing based Nsure is an independent familyowned firm of chartered financial advisers.

INHERITANCE TAX PLANNING

P

aul Samrah, Henfield resident and partner at Chartered Accountants Kingston Smith LLP, provides some valuable Inheritance Tax advice.

Planning ahead allows you to set out clearly who should get what from your Estate on your death. It also means you can maximise Inheritance Tax (IHT) reliefs and exemptions should your Estate be worth more than the IHT threshold or ‘nil-rate band’ when you die (currently £325,000). A growing number of people are becoming liable to IHT because of an increase in property prices from the early 1980s to 2007. IHT applies to your entire worldwide Estate (including property, savings, investments and chattels) and is charged at 40%. There are various exemptions which enable you to reduce your potential IHT bill, but these should be used with care. Your starting point should be to write a will and review it every few years to check that it still reflects your wishes and dovetails with prevailing tax legislation. Making a will and making sure people know where to find it, is the first step to ensuring that your Estate is shared out in line with your wishes when you die. If you don’t leave a will, your Estate will be shared among your next of kin based on a strict order of priority in accordance with the rules of intestacy. This means that people who you want to benefit from your Estate might get nothing. If you are unmarried/not in a civil partnership and living together then, quite simply, you definitely need a will, otherwise your loved one will receive absolutely nothing from your Estate upon your death. The deceased’s parents, siblings and even ex-partner can be potential beneficiaries, rather than the surviving partner. This can cause untold misery, particularly where the home was owned solely by the partner who died. Divorce, or dissolution of a civil partnership, could cause parts of your will to be nullified and marriage or remarriage may completely invalidate a current will. If you change an existing will, it is generally a good idea to start the new one with a clause stating that it ‘revokes all previous wills’. Lifetime gifts are treated in a number of ways for IHT purposes. However, from an IHT point of view, you only need to worry about making gifts if you think your Estate – including the value of any gifts you make – might exceed the IHT threshold when you die. If your Estate is over the threshold, any gifts that you make more than seven years before you die may be exempt from IHT. There can be tax implications if you give your home away to your children or someone else during your lifetime. If you give your home away and continue to live in it, your Estate or the person you gave your home to, might still have to pay IHT on the property when you die, as well as other taxes. In order for a

gift to be effective for exemption from IHT, the person receiving the gift must get the full benefit of the gift to the total exclusion of the donor. In respect of the seven year rule above, you must survive for seven years from the date of making the gift for it to be free of IHT. If you die within the seven years, the IHT payable is calculated on a sliding scale, ranging from 40% (no relief) in the first 3 years to 8% in the seventh year on any excess over the nil rate band. Decreasing term assurance can be arranged to cover the potential IHT liability during the seven year period following the gift of a potentially exempt transfer. Other exempt transfers include gifts out of surplus income. These should be treated with particular care and recorded – they must be regular payments from your income and not have any detrimental effect on your normal standard of living. Transfers between UK-domiciled spouses/civil partners, gifts to UK established charities and political parties, national institutions (National Trust, British Museum etc) are all exempt from IHT. Small gifts of up to £250 per annum to any number of individuals are treated as exempt – these gifts are meant to cover things such as birthday and Christmas presents. Similarly exempt are gifts totalling no more than £3,000 in total to any individuals in any one year (ie £1,000 to each of three children or £3,000 to one child). This exemption can be rolled over for one Tax Year, but cannot be combined with small gifts to the same person(s). Also exempt are gifts to people getting married – up to £5,000 from each parent of the couple, £2,500 from each grandparent or more remote relative and £1,000 from anyone else. Assets that qualify for Business Property Relief, such as shares in AIM-listed and unquoted trading companies can attract 100% relief from IHT provided that the investment is held for at least two years.
