If you are single or divorced current UK legislation allows the first £325,000 (2012/2013 Tax Year) of your estate to be free from Inheritance Tax, or £650,000 if you are married in a civil partnership or widowed (providing no previous gifts were made by the deceased spouse).
Under current legislation, the taxman could take a massive 40% of everything you leave over the threshold (known as the nil rate band). This means that the HM Revenue & Customs may receive considerably more from your estate than you may realise and many people are not aware of what they can do to mitigate this.
We are able to advise as to the most tax efficient way to manage your estate and finances – from trusts to tax and more. Everyone’s circumstances are different; you may own a business or have a farm in which case you may be entitled to some significant tax reliefs. We can help you review your current circumstances and assist you with making you as tax efficient as possible.
