The Exizent IHT205 form pre-populates 85% of the fields, including calculations, to save you time and removes the need to re-key details.

❗ In order to generate an IHT205 you must create a caseadd the Executor(s) and add at least one asset to your case 

❗ The IHT205 will only be available to generate when the deceased's date of death is before 1st January 2022

❗ Once you have exported the IHT205 the form will not be editable. If you notice mistakes on the form then you must go to where you originally entered the data in your case and update the information then save it. This will be either on the platform (in the People section or in 1 of the assets) or within the editor. When you export the IHT205 again, the information will have automatically updated. For example, if you have misspelt the deceased's name, go back to your Estate overview, click into the deceased's details, update the name with the correct spelling and click Save. Go back and click into the IHT205 and export again to see the correct spelling displayed

👍 Your IHT205 form will remain stored in your Inheritance Tax forms tab so you can access it at any time.

👍 The platform populates the IHT205 form with the most up to date case information every time you open the form so you can have confidence the form is always up-to-date
