Estate Planning and Inheritance Tax

Few of us like to think about dying, but equally few of us could live with the thought that we have not made adequate provision for family and friends who survive us.

The legislation that governs passing on your estate to your chosen beneficiaries requires you to plan well in advance. Since none of us know what the future holds for us, making the right steps now could ensure a safe financial future for your loved ones.

The earlier you make the arrangements, the greater your chance of taking full advantage of the tax opportunities available and thereby maximising the amount that goes to your beneficiaries. Nothing is more demoralising than the thought that a substantial slice of the wealth that you have worked hard to accumulate will end up in the Government’s pockets!

It is equally important when planning to transfer your estate that you make adequate provision for yourself and your spouse in later years. Striking this balance calls for considerable skill and foresight – and a detailed knowledge of the tax regime.

We provide a discreet estate planning service that includes:

  • Help with drawing up and reviewing your will
  • Making full use of exemptions and lower tax rates on lifetime transfers
  • Optimising lifetime transfers between spouses
  • Transferring agricultural or business property
  • Asset protection for children, involving gifting assets to children while retaining ultimate control of the asset to protect against future unforeseen circumstances (see also Trust Advice)
  • Arranging adequate life assurance to cover potential inheritance tax liabilities

Forward planning is essential; please get in touch soon if we can be of any assistance.
