As part of our Will, Probate and Trusts services, taxation advice is a significant part of our work. We cover inheritance tax, which is a tax on the estate of someone who has died.
In terms of taxation advice and inheritance tax planning, our solicitors will be able to review what’s in the estate and find out if there is an inheritance tax.
Although the process of preparing a will or administrating an estate can be confusing, the position of trusts and inheritance tax is another complex ingredient in the process. We’re more than happy to support you through this to explain, determine and administrate your will or the will you’re the executor of, along with the taxes involved.
Whilst our team is vastly experienced in reviewing and managing issues surrounding wills, they are very helpful when it comes to inheritance tax planning.
Inheritance tax is a tax that is on the estate (which includes the property, money and possessions) of someone who has passed away. There are occasions where inheritance tax doesn’t need to be paid.
This occurs when:
The person who pays the inheritance tax (if it is to be paid) is the person that has been tasked to deal with the estate.
Our inheritance tax solicitors will have the intel required to maximise the amount you can leave to your loved ones when you pass. Inheritance tax must be paid before probate is granted. That’s when, and only when, the inheritance is released.
We can help you to reduce inheritance tax on your estate. By minimising on the tax payable on your death, you can help to ensure your family are left as much as possible without having to pay tax.
