Inheritance Tax

HomeBereavementInheritance Tax

Inheritance tax is currently charged at 40% and affects many UK families, even those with modest wealth. Without proper planning, you may find that on your death, some of your money and assets have to be paid to the taxman.

Proper inheritance tax planning could save your family thousands of pounds. Contrary to what you may think, inheritance tax is regarded as one of the most avoidable of taxes.

We can provide you with an assessment of your potential tax liability on death and discuss with you proper planning to mitigate any tax due.

If you are concerned about the amount of inheritance tax that is likely to be payable on your death, there are a number of estate planning exercises you can carry out during your lifetime. For example you could make lifetime gifts, (perhaps using a trust), convert assets into those which will qualify for tax relief, or restructure your will.
