Estate Planning

Sound estate planning advice is essential to ensuring as much of your estate is left to loved ones as possible, without being compromised by inheritance tax liabilities. Just calculating the value of your estate can be challenging enough. Our experts are here to assist you throughout the process. We’ll recommend a strategy to help you leave a tax efficient legacy.

Intestacy occurs when a person dies without making a valid Will. When this happens it is left to the government to manage your estate. Establishing a Will is essential to avoiding this and is a key component of estate planning.

We can help you to consider these important issues calmly and objectively, creating a succession plan that keeps as much of your wealth as possible within the family while minimising the taxman’s share.
