Tax & Estate Planning

If your home, possessions and financial assets add up to more than £325,000 when you die, the Chancellor could help himself to 40% of everything you leave above that limit.

The value of property alone takes many of us over the Inheritance Tax threshold – and that’s before you add in savings, investments, insurance policies, cars, and personal possessions.

So the life-changing legacy you were hoping to give your children could be swallowed up in taxes.

Short of resolving not to die, you need to think now about what your estate (everything you own) is worth, and how you can ensure you leave it to the right people and not to the man in 11 Downing Street.

You also need to consider how much your estate might be worth in, say, 10 or 20 years’ time.

Plus, you need to know the Inheritance Act inside out, be familiar with the intricacies of HMRC’s rules and thresholds, and have a good understanding of tax planning strategies.

Or, you could ask us to help.

We’ve been making things easier for people for generations – and apart from having the legal knowledge and tax planning experience, we understand just how important it is to protect the inheritance of the ones you love… instead of leaving them a nasty tax bill instead.
