Inheritance Tax Planning

Inheritance tax can be charged at a rate of up to 20% on certain gifts during your lifetime and, after you pass away, it can be charged at a rate of up to 40% on the value of your estate in excess of the nil-rate band.

So if you want to ensure your loved ones can benefit from your estate it’s important to plan for inheritance tax as soon possible, as procrastination on this matter is likely to cost you money.

Pro-active inheritance tax and succession planning can help protect your assets for the future and have a significant impact on the value of assets for your beneficiaries. We can provide you with a wide range of bespoke inheritance tax solutions, from inheritance tax and Will review services, to tailored tax planning for your estate (including trusts).

The type of inheritance tax planning devised will depend on the type of assets involved (i.e. property, cash, collectables, or business interests, e.g. shares) and, most importantly, your preferences for how and when your estate should be passed on.
