 Secondary liability for the payment of inheritance tax in Ireland

Generally the beneficiary (the person who gets the benefit) is liable and responsible for paying his or her own capital acquisition tax (inheritance tax) on receiving a benefit.

The Capital Acquisition Tax Consolidation Act 2003 imposes an obligation on a beneficiary to file a Capital Acquisition Tax (CAT) return.

The law provides that there is an obligation to file where the value of the benefit exceeds 80% of the tax free threshold for the benefit.

Secondary liability only applies in limited circumstances where an Irish resident personal representative (or a solicitor acting as agent) may be liable for the CAT of a non-resident beneficiary.
