Inheritance Tax

Planning for your estate so those left behind can make the most of your assets, wealth and property requires a clear understanding of the Inheritance Tax rules.

It is important that we look at every aspect of relief and what exemptions will apply to you and your estate. 

Our Wills and Probate will consider what business and assets you own. We will look at the latest rules considering not only the core principles of Tax and Estate planning, but also what tax-free allowances may apply, what exempts and gifts are relevant, the options of charitable and trust donations as well as raising concerns HMRC on your behalf.

Clearly the overlap with our Property, Family, Litigation and Probate teams ensure you get the right legal advice that is both reassuring but relevant to you.
