We are experts in negotiating with HM Revenue & Customs to minimise the amount of Inheritance Tax that is to be paid from the estate.
Almost universally, our clients’ biggest concern it to ensure that their estate is passed on to their family and that the tax man receives as little as possible. Only a small percentage of estates are taxable, but at a rate of 40% the amount of tax payable can be significant.
Inheritance Tax is calculated on the value of an estate at the time of death. However, the amount of inheritance tax payable is not always certain and can sometimes be open to interpretation. We have extensive experience in negotiating with HM Revenue & Customs to minimise the tax payable.
