Inheritance tax & estate planning – an overview

Like so many areas of personal finance, estate planning can be complex but it is important that you put the right measures in place now to ensure your wishes are respected after you are gone.

If your total assets are over the inheritance tax (IHT) threshold, your family may have to pay up to 40% of the assets you have saved to pass on to your children and grandchildren.

Careful estate planning is necessary if you want to protect your estate and its assets and safeguard your children’s legacy. Above all, estate planning protects your family if something happens to you. This is not just for the wealthy and doesn’t have to be complicated. By working with a local financial adviser, we’ll simplify the complexity and deliver the best outcome for you.

We’ll look at your assets so that we can help you take the appropriate steps to minimise, and possibly avoid your IHT bill.
