Inheritance tax is voluntary, but forward planning is essential.
Making the right plans to take care of what happens financially after your death is not a topic many people look forward to, but is an essential step if you are serious about protecting your wealth. Forward planning is essential if you want peace of mind.
Our estate and inheritance tax planning specialists work with you to identify ways to minimise your inheritance tax liabilities. We’ll review your estate, including personal and business assets, and prepare a tax-efficient will – a cornerstone of estate planning. We’ll look at tax-minimisation opportunities, including trusts, and help you make best use of the gifts and exemptions allowed under IHT rules, including lifetime gifts, annual gifts, gifts to charities and agricultural and business property relief.
Estate planning is not just about what happens when you die.
At Williams Ross we’ll make sure plans are in place to give you financial security during your lifetime and take into consideration the possibility of long-term care costs.
We can also advise on life insurance policies written in trust, a simple device that gives your family a tax-free lump sum towards any inheritance tax on your estate.
