Understanding the impact of taxes such as inheritance tax is a cornerstone of good estate planning. With an increasingly complicated tax system, both in the UK and abroad, ensuring compliance with your obligations is essential.

We provide an Inheritance Tax planning service that works for you whilst ensuring compliance with your legal obligations. We are experienced in dealing with complicated tax planning including cross border planning. Our solicitors provide advice about matters including making sure you have maximised the available Inheritance Tax allowances in your Will, maximising lifetime allowances and making gifts to your children and the next generation.

There is a very close relationship between your lifetime financial planning and Inheritance Tax planning. As a result we often work with financial advisors to ensure that your Inheritance Tax plan works both during your lifetime and after your death.

We can work separately or with your advisers to create a plan that is right for you. We are also able to recommend trusted advisers to work with you.

We pride ourselves on offering a personalised service and you will be allocated your own solicitor who will guide you through the process from start to finish. All of our solicitors are full members of STEP and are considered leading experts in this area of law.

We can meet you at home, our office, your office or any other location to suit you. We also offer meetings by online video (such as Zoom, Skype and Teams) or by telephone.
