Changes to taxation and trust legislation in recent years have exposed you to a greater likelihood of paying Inheritance Tax. If you own a second home, land, antiques or other investments, you may be liable to pay Capital Gains Tax on profits made in excess of your current annual tax allowance. It is now harder than ever as a family to ensure your wealth can stay within your family as the generations pass.
A widow with an estate of £1,000,000 and three children could face a situation where the Inland Revenue is the largest single beneficiary of the estate.
Whilst you do not expect to die young, have you made sufficient provision for your family¹s future should the unexpected happen? The foundation to a family estate plan is a well drafted will ensuring the assets pass to those you want to benefit and that where possible, you make use of all allowances available.
If you have valuable assets exposed to Inheritance or Capital Gains tax we can help you control your tax burden with prudent and recognised planning mechanisms that can complement the legal and accountancy advice you receive.
