Inheritance Tax Planning

Having built up wealth after paying tax along the way many people are keen to pass on as much wealth as possible without paying any more tax than they have to. Often, we find clients realise and are grateful that they are in a fortunate financial position. Parental instinct can kick in and many want to be able to pass on wealth down through the generations to children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren to help them establish and enjoy their lives. As with most financial planning, the sooner so you start to think about taking action the more effective it can be, especially as some solutions take seven years to be fully exempt.

How we can assist you with you IHT planning?

We work with you to understand your objectives and what you want to achieve. The first thing we need to understand is what the IHT liability is on your estate to quantify the amount of tax which is potentially payable. A full IHT computation will be produced to quantify the liability then we can start planning on how to reduce the impact of tax. Part of this process is looking at your own needs to ensure that any gifting of income or capital is not detrimental to your own longer-term position.

Once this analysis has been completed, we will prepare a report outlining our recommended course of action.

Our experience?

We have built up considerable expertise and practical application in the private client world through working with other professional advisers to help plan clients’ affairs to minimise the impact of IHT.
