Inheritance tax planning

When you have spent a whole lifetime building up your personal wealth, you want to think that upon your death your estate will pass into the hands of your chosen beneficiaries and not into the hands of the taxman.

And yet, all too often we meet clients who are shocked at how much of their inheritance is taken from them before they even see it! At present rates, the taxman can take up to 40% of your estate!

Inheritance tax (IHT) used to be referred to as a 'voluntary tax' for the very wealthy, but with the recent dramatic increases in property values without a corresponding increase in the IHT threshold, many more estates have come within the Taxman's reach.

This makes estate planning all the more necessary - and all the more urgent. Use our simple calculator to estimate your potential liability or Call Stephen Collier on 0161 761 5231 today to discuss how we can help you preserve as much of your wealth as possible for your family.
