If all your assets - including your home - are worth £325,000 or over, you could be caught out by Inheritance Tax. It's more and more likely that you will need to consider inheritance tax in your financial plans. Although it used to affect only the very wealthy, a general rise in house prices over the past decade means that more people have fallen into the inheritance tax bracket.
Inheritance tax is payable if the value of your estate exceeds £325,000 (in the tax year 2012/13). Tax on any part of your estate above this threshold may be charged at 40%. Your estate includes everything you own, less any outstanding debts, when you die. Even if you give away some of your assets during your lifetime, such as property or money, they may still be included in your estate if they are given away within 7 years of your death.
There are ways that you can reduce the potential inheritance tax bill, or even eliminate it altogether, so do make an appointment with our team and talk to us for expert advice.
The needs and requirements of Trustees can differ from those of private individuals. The legal requirements of the Trustee Act 2000 places a duty upon Trustees to seek advice from a suitably qualified professional in respect of investments held. Do pick up the phone and talk to us, we are here to help.
