Inheritance Tax Planning
Estate planning, trusts & gifting
Prepare your finances so your estate pays what’s required, but no more
Having paid tax on your earnings and any capital gains throughout your life, it’s hard to think that tax is then charged on your estate when you die.
If you plan ahead, you can make sure that you minimise the amount that needs to be paid in inheritance tax, maximising the amount left to the beneficiaries you nominate in your Will.
By considering the way your current finances are set up and understanding who you want to pass on your estate to, we can help you minimise the inheritance tax that will be due, or even avoid the need for a payment to be made.
We use our extensive experience of this aspect of financial planning to consider areas such as putting money into trusts, the tax efficiency of different investments, the options for gifting money and the rules that apply.
We can also advise on which income streams you should spend from first and those which you should try to keep, in order to minimise your tax exposure.
Make sure you have a Will in place
Another key part of preparing your estate to be passed on is ensuring you have a Will in place and that it is up to date.
We can help our clients think through the options for passing on their assets. If you would like to know more about our service, please visit our Wills page, which also includes information about putting a power of attorney in place.
Not having a Will leaves your loved ones with an extra challenge at a very difficult time.
