Inheritance Tax Advice

Our team will take the time to understand you and your family circumstances. They will consider your wishes and put together a plan for you to execute during your lifetime with the aim of reducing the amount of inheritance tax that will become due on death. We have an experienced and skilled team that can advise you of your options and the associated risks, thereby enabling you to make fully informed decisions, thus avoiding unexpected surprises in the future.


Trusts can be used as a vehicle to provide lifetime gifts. They can help you preserve your assets whilst moving them outside your taxable estate and ensure that they are directed to those you wish to benefit, on terms that you are able to dictate. Our team can advise you which type of trust would suit your objectives and prepare the relevant trust document for you. We will advise you of the tax consequences of these trusts and the current requirements to reduce your inheritance tax liability. We will also advise you who the best people might be to manage the Trust (Trustees).

Trusts can give your Trustees the ability and discretion to make decisions based on the circumstances that present themselves, to benefit your chosen beneficiaries. This can be helpful for disabled beneficiaries and troubled relationships with family members and minors.
