Inheritance Tax

Without good advice and careful planning, HM Revenue and Customs could be the biggest single beneficiary when you die.

Inheritance Tax (IHT) has an increasingly broad reach. Its impact on a modest estate can be dramatic. On a large estate it can be huge.

There are various ways you make the best of Inheritance Tax:

  • Have your Will written and planned correctly to save the maximum amount of tax*
  • Transfer assets through prudent use of lifetime gifts
  • Create a tax-efficient fund so that your beneficiaries can pay any taxes due without dipping into their inheritance. Under current IHT legislation, pensions can play a considerable role here.

Alongside four leading law firms, we can help with a range of legal services, including Inheritance Tax, marriage issues and general tax planning.

The value of an investment with St. James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than the amount initially invested.

The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.
