Inheritance tax planning

Inheritance Tax (IHT) used to be considered the preserve of the very wealthy. However today is a very different world.

With the current high levels of property prices and the relatively low 'nil rate band' of £325,000 there are many people who, potentially, will be impacted by IHT without judicious planning.

Without such planning problems unforseen and unintended can fall on to those who inherit from your estate. It is essential that you have drawn up a will that reflects your wishes and is structured to take into account the impact of IHT.

At Johnsons we have the expertise to guide you through the array of options including how to take advantage of the annual exemptions and to make lifetime transfers.

There are also considerations to be made if you are non-domiciled and have property abroad where specialist advice will be required.

If you own a business that has a trading company, we will help you ensure that those companies are structured in such a way to ensure that your estate will be entitled to 100% Business Property Relief.

We respect that IHT planning can often be a sensitive matter and can support you throughout with professionalism and consideration.
