Effective planning can help to ensure that as much of your estate as possible is passed on to your loved ones. It is important that you receive advice from an expert at as early a stage as possible.
Inheritance Tax Burden
Inheritance Tax can be high, and the rates are continually subject to change.
Most people want some certainty and peace of mind, and to minimise the amount of Inheritance Tax which has to be paid when they die. Planning ahead can help you reduce significantly the Inheritance Tax burden on your death.
Nursing and Care Home Fees
Paying care home fees or nursing home fees can also be a huge worry, both for you and for your family and loved ones.
Effective estate and tax planning can help you put mechanisms in place to protect assets from being used to pay for the cost of care home fees or nursing home fees. Expert help will be required to make sure that the steps you take will be effective and within the law.
Agricultural Property Relief
Agricultural property is subject to very specific rules concerning when it can be used to minimise your Inheritance Tax burden, and expert advice should be taken to ensure that you are able to take advantake of the maximum reliefs available to you and your family.
Being based in Devon, we have a wealth of experience in assisting clients to properly plan for passing on their agricultural property.
If you want financial protection for your children or other vulnerable people when you die, structuring your affairs in a certain way can be very effective. The law is continually changing, and so it is vital that you receive the most up to date and expert advice that is available.
By putting your affairs in order you can reduce the burden on your loved ones in the event that the unexpected should happen.
