Inheritance Tax & Estate Planning

A former Chancellor of the Exchequer, the late Lord Jenkins of Hillhead (Roy Jenkins at the time) once said ‘Inheritance Tax is a voluntary levy paid by those who distrust their heirs more than they dislike the Inland Revenue’.

This is not necessarily true, but many people are not aware of the legitimate steps they can take to pass on to those they hold dear what they have accumulated in life, rather than give too much to the Tax Man. By understanding your wishes and your personal circumstances we can help you make sure you use the available reliefs and strategies, without making life difficult for you while you are still living.
