Inheritance Tax can have a big impact on your estate after your death. For some people, if the value of their assets, less any debts, is more than £325,000 anything over that figure may be charged to tax at 40%.
Through sensible lifetime planning, it is possible to help your loved ones by reducing the amount of tax payable on your death. This can be done through careful drafting of a Will, by reducing the size of your estate through lifetime gifting or by the use of trusts.
Our specialist team will ensure that you fully understand:
- the current inheritance tax legislation;
- how it might impact upon you given the nature and extent of your assets; and
- provide you with the options available to you to reduce your estate’s liability on your death.
