INHERITANCE TAX PLANNING
This area of financial planning can sometimes be an uncomfortable topic to discuss but a must if the situation arises. Inheritance Tax (IHT) is a major concern for many people; especially given the substantial rises in UK property in recent times has led to more estates and families falling outside the IHT threshold. Without proper inheritance tax advice and planning, people can end up leaving a substantial tax liability on their death, considerably reducing the value of the estate they pass on to chosen beneficiaries.
There are various ways of reducing Inheritance Tax from making regular gifts out of surplus income through to sizeable gifts through investment into trust. However, each of the options available must be considered carefully, matched to your individual needs/circumstances & also to adhere to HMRCs rules.
