Inheritance Tax: Can you afford not to plan?

Inheritance Tax planning is dictated by more than one event.

Benefits of tax planning: Safeguard your future

With house prices increasing, even a modest house is falling into the inheritance tax net. Death is one situation where inheritance tax is looked into, however other changes may force us to review financial strategies such as redundancy, inheritance or divorce.

What’s involved

Planning for inheritance tax in advance ensures lifetime gifts, allowances and claims can be maximised. Assets can be passed on to future generations in the most tax efficient way. Planning is especially essential for deemed domiciled persons, broadly speaking those who have been resident in the UK for 17 out of the last 20 years.
