Inheritance tax, trust and estate planning

Sadly, inheritance tax (IHT) accounted for around £5bn of tax revenue last year – is hitting families harder than ever.

The key to IHT, trust and estate planning is to plan ahead. Around 70% of people die without a will, which causes added IHT problems. Also, setting up a trust in your will, will mean that any assets in the trust will likely be exempt from inheritance tax.

We know that it is a subject that people do not want to talk about. However, leaving lifetime planning to the last minute leads to missed opportunities to reduce the tax liability and thus causing stress, problems and a increased tax liability to your loved ones.

Take advantage of our advice for inheritance tax planning to avoid the mistakes that others make and plan ahead. We will help you to understand the basics of inheritance tax and how it can affect your estate.

It’s important that you take control of your financial future and start planning for the unexpected.

We advise on the full spectrum of IHT planning, from what should be included within basic tax efficient wills, through to more complex IHT matters such as bespoke trust structures.

We can also arrange for wills, deeds of variation, trust deeds and other legal documents to be prepared if necessary.

Key inheritance tax, trust and estate opportunities may arise from:

  • Clients with estates worth over £325,000 individually
  • Couples with combined estates over £650,000
  • Clients with out of date wills or no wills
  • Recent business sales or inheritances
  • Farmers and property/land owners
  • Widows and widowers
  • Clients who pay grandchildren’s school fees
  • Clients with money invested in property companies
  • Clients concerned about family company succession planning
  • Business property relief and agricultural property relief

The support from Footprints team has always been fantastic, but during this period of Corona virus they have been just awesome. During the lockdown many accountants have closed and furloughed most of their staff.... And this is when the businesses have been in real need of support and advice. BUT Footprints made arrangements to continue working and providing support for businesses, sending information and advice sometimes even daily, replying emails and returning calls, so that no client is left alone. If you are looking for an accountant or are disappointed with yours, it is time to contact Footprints.read more
