Unbelievable. They say the only things certain in life are Death and taxes, now the U.K Government are combing the two. Nice one Dave.
Death is going to get more expensive - by about £170. Whether you are burnt or buried when you go, the government is planning to grab an extra £170
from your estate via a new death tax. It claims the tax is needed because they want to improve the accuracy of death statistics.
So in order to improve the accuracy of death statistics, they are now asking families of the deceased to pay £170 before they are going to allow them
to bury or creamate their loved ones. Whatever happened to registering the Death with the local registry office, can they not be trusted anymore?
But apparently if it is a coroner related death (I'm guessing it doesn't mean the coroner murdering you) , then the £170 is waived.
I must admit I did have to check the date when I first read this, but yes we are in October.
Next stop, the air that you breath.
Stop the world, I want to get off!!
