Inheritance Tax is usually paid by an estate upon death. A tax charge is applied to the amount of your estate above the nil rate band which is presently £325,000 and the rate of tax payable is currently 40%. Many clients do not realise that their estate would actually have inheritance tax liability or that steps could be taken to help mitigate it.
Our experienced team can help you assess these options which can include gifting, utilising Annual Allowances, appropriate Will writing and the use of Trusts.
Our Financial Services Department can call upon the experience of colleagues within our Private Client Department to ensure that as much of your wealth as possible passes to your beneficiaries rather than the state. We recognise the importance of protecting your wealth and inheritance tax planning is just a part of that. Our dedicated Private Client team can work with you to draft your Will so you have peace of mind knowing those closest to you will benefit as you would wish.
