It’s wise to plan your Estate early in life. Even if you think your Estate is small and you feel young, it is important to ensure that your beneficiaries are well cared for and you are able to optimise their inheritance, minimising the impact of taxes when you’re gone.
With the spiraling house prices of recent years and a minimum Inheritance Tax Threshold of £325,000 it is easy to see how a seemingly simple Estate could soon incur significant tax costs if little attention is paid.
Inheritance planning is not just a tax issue and we take a personal approach, helping you ensure that your own financial needs are met now and in the future, without giving away too much too soon.
In general we can advise on:
• Individual Estate planning, whether large or small.
• Tax optimisation techniques to mitigate exposure to family homes, investment portfolios, businesses held, etc.
