Inheritance Tax and estate planning

Inheritance Tax

Protecting your wealth is important but without planning, 40% of your estate could be lost to Inheritance Tax when you die.

Fortunately, there are many ways to minimise your exposure to Inheritance Tax. Making sure you structure your affairs tax efficiently with a view to meeting your long-term plans is essential. 

Planning should be as straightforward as possible as tax legislation and your personal circumstances will change over time.
