For those looking for exceptional estate planning services across Lincoln, Peterborough, King’s Lynn and throughout the UK, look no further than Town & Country Law. Our lawyers have a wealth of experience in a range of fields, including inheritance tax planning, and as such there is no one better in the region to help you with your estate arrangements.
Inheritance tax is a tax payable on estates exceeding £325,000 in value (or £650,000 for a married couple) and its rate stands at 40%. If you leave your estate to charity, or a spouse or civil partner, inheritance tax will not apply (in the case of a spouse, upon the first spouse’s death). If you leave your estate to anyone else, such as your children, then the tax will come into effect. However, through efficient, lawful planning you can ensure as little of your estate goes to HMRC as possible.
At Town & Country Law, we only use our experienced in-house chartered accountants to advise our clients and structure their estates to work for them. We’ll work closely with you to guarantee that your estate is well organised and everything is planned for. By doing so, you will ensure that any inheritance tax is paid efficiently and in a timely manner. So to discuss your unique requirements and to find out more, simply contact our friendly and professional team today. We’re always happy to help.
