Inheritance Tax Planning

Inheritance tax is, in essence, a fairly simple tax in that each person is entitled to leave a set amount (currently £325,000) free of tax. Anything over that set amount (known as the ‘nil-rate band’), is taxed at 40%. There are any number of ways by which the impact of inheritance tax can be reduced, and planning ahead means we can help you maximise the various tax relief’s and exemptions.  

We can give specific tailored advice to suit your needs and to make sure you are fully informed to make the right decisions.
