Inheritance Tax (IHT) Planning

One of the primary goals of estate planning is to minimise taxes and maximise the assets left to your intended beneficiaries. Our London estate and tax planning solicitors work diligently to achieve these goals.

Understanding the inheritance tax starts with understanding the "nil-rate band." Through 2015, the nil-rate band will be £325,000. This means that an estate valued at less than £325,000 will not be subject to any inheritance tax. Any value above £325,000 will be taxed at a rate of 40%.

There are many complex legal rules and methods for reducing or avoiding IHT. These are quite technical and best explained in a consultation with an experienced solicitor. Every person's circumstances are unique, but a few of the most common methods for dealing with estate taxes are:

  • Placing assets into a trust, which has many tax advantages
  • Giving gifts of money or property during life rather than through a Will
  • Transferring unused nil-rate allowances from a deceased spouse or civil partner to the survivor

At Rollingsons, our solicitors understand the personal and sensitive nature of estate and tax planning. We keep our clients' information in the strictest confidence. We are equipped to handle estate matters of all sorts, from the administration of a rather simple estate to dealing with all aspects of a complex one.
