Safeguarding your wealth for future generations

Steps to mitigate against Inheritance Tax

Unforeseen life events and circumstances can potentially impact your finances in a number of ways. We can help you to safeguard your wealth for future generations. But for many of us, there can be a remarkable gap between our intentions and our actions.

Keeping it in the family

Careful planning can reduce or even eliminate the Inheritance Tax payable

Intergenerational planning helps you put financial measures in place to benefit your children later in life, and possibly even your future grandchildren, so it’s important to start planning early.

Inheritance Tax concerns?

Passing your wealth on to the next generation

You have worked hard to build your wealth. Passing it on to the next generation fairly, safely, effectively and efficiently takes skill and careful preparation. But some people find the idea of discussing inheritance uncomfortable and subsequently put off estate planning until, in some instances, it may be too late to make a difference.

Wealth preservation

Reducing Inheritance Tax means taking action now

Without professional advice and careful financial planning, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) can become the single largest beneficiary of your estate following your death. A recent survey about Inheritance Tax (IHT)[1] shows that wealthy Britons over the age of 45 are either ignoring estate planning solutions or they have forgotten about the benefits these can provide. Only 27% of those surveyed have taken financial advice on IHT planning, despite all of them having a potential IHT liability.

Will you make provision for all that you hold dear?

Getting your affairs in order and planning what you want to pass on to loved ones

Writing a Will may seem daunting – and with everything else we should be thinking about, it becomes just another chore on the to-do list. However, getting your affairs in order and planning what you want to pass on to loved ones – whether it’s while you’re alive or after you’ve passed away – is really important. Not only does it mean that your wishes can be carried out, but it can also help reduce the emotional and financial burden on loved ones at an already difficult time.
