Inheritance Tax Planning
Our Private Client Solicitors are experts in advising on wealth, tax & inheritance issues, having helped many clients make use of the various reliefs and a raft of tried and tested methods to save money.
At Herrington Carmichael we receive many questions relating to the legal process on Equity Release or tax and inheritance – after years of property market growth, we are seeing more cases of clients who have decided one way or another that they would like to release some equity from their property or gain an understanding of the Inheritance Tax Reliefs and Exemptions with a little advice on income and capital gains tax.
Inheritance Tax Planning
Inheritance Tax has not gone away. It may be less of a problem for many families than it was a few years ago but for any single person with an estate in excess of £325,000 or a couple with more than £650,000, the tax remains an issue. Despite the falling property prices of the last few years many of our clients do exceed these levels. Tax can often be a daunting subject.
Income and Capital Gains Tax (CGT)
Whilst we do not claim to be experts in every type of tax, we are recognised specialists in inheritance tax in the UK. In addition, we do have considerable knowledge of income and capital gains tax and often advise on these.
Making a Will
We are able to advise on tax planning matters as part of our Will drafting service, at other times we will give separate advice.
