Inheritance Tax & Estate Planning
Finding the best legitimate options to safeguard your estate so that it is not taxed unnecessarily and is received safely in the hands of the intended beneficiaries may be achieved through careful Inheritance Tax Planning.
Whilst it is important to plan ahead and to make sure your hard-earned assets do not go to the Government in Inheritance Tax when you die, you should also set out clearly in advance who should get what from your estate allowing you to make sure your children, grandchildren and other proposed beneficiaries are looked after when you die.

Inheritance Tax (IHT) is a major concern as more and more estates fall within the IHT threshold.
Effective tax planning is essential to avoid leaving a substantial tax liability at death, thereby substantially reducing the value of the estate passing on to beneficiaries.
