You have worked hard for your money, so make sure that you protect that to pass it onto your loved ones as you would wish. With high property prices, it is easy for people to see the value of their assets and savings creep past the point at which tax will become payable on the estate, potentially leaving family members with a large bill to pay before probate.
Our friendly and knowledgeable team is here to help you and your family plan for the future.
Avoiding paying inheritance tax means planning in advance. Through the use of gifts, trusts and exemptions, paying large amounts of inheritance tax can be avoided. Taking early advice is essential as options such as giving money as a gift needs to be done a number of years before a person’s death to avoid tax. A long-term strategy as part of a policy to protect your finances is the best way to secure your financial legacy.
The cost of care can quickly erode savings – and the legacy you planned to leave behind. Make sure that you are in a position to afford care if you should need it and that your assets are protected.
