Reduce your inheritance tax bill by planning ahead.
Inheritance tax (IHT) is an ever-increasing source of revenue for the government, £5.4bn in 2017/18 alone!
Almost everything you earn will have been taxed heavily, often more than once. Don’t let it be taxed again. Ensure that your hard-earned wealth passes on to those who need it.
If your retirement plans are truly on track and you are fortunate enough to be worried about IHT then we will help you manage your situation to ensure that your estate is passed on to the right people in a tax efficient and timely manner.
Sometimes this can be as easy as arranging a series of small gifts, or perhaps larger sums into a suitable trust. It is not always possible to avoid IHT so the priority is to ensure that you have enough for yourself first, and secondly that you remain in control of your estate and that someone you trust is left with authority of that control once you have gone.
Most people want to ensure that their wealth stays within their family - bloodline planning. This will mitigate any poor relationship decisions from preventing your money reaching your grandchildren for example.
We have a number of properties with different mortgages for each. Rickard Lazenby have been excellent at helping us managing these and ensure that we are always paying the best rates.
