Cohabiting Couples

D Moloney Financial

Protection Cover For Cohabiting Couples

Most people are aware that all benefits passing between married couples are exempt from Inheritance and Gift Tax. Previously, this relief only applied to “legal spouses”.

As a result of the changes in Finance (No 3) Act 2011 this ‘spouse’ exemption was extended to registered civil partners. 

All other cohabiting couples are still treated as strangers for Inheritance and Gift Tax purposes. 

The “stranger threshold” (Threshold-Group C) for Inheritance Tax is currently €16,250. Inheritances in excess of €16,250 are subject to tax at 33%.
