Inheritance Tax Planning I Executor Services and Estate Tax
Keeping your hard-earned wealth safe from unnecessary tax is down to preparation and planning. By taking action now, your family and their future generations can benefit for years to come. HMRC can take up to 40% of the overall value of your estate when you die; therefore, Sherlock & Co encourage everyone to keep potential Inheritance Tax (IHT) liabilities under review.
What is Inheritance Tax Planning?
IHT is often referred to as the "avoidable tax," and with careful planning, it can be. At Sherlock & Co, we advise all our clients about the various reliefs and exemptions that are available, but our best advice to keep liabilities to a minimum is to plan for the long term.
Many people are now affected by IHT and this is largely because of property values. A number of strategies can be used to reduce the IHT bill including:
- Tax-efficient wills;
- Use of exemptions for business assets;
- Lifetime gifts;
- Transfer of assets;
- Putting assets into a trust; and
- Taking out life insurance.
Sherlock & Co will advise you accordingly based on your situation.
