Nothing is certain but death and taxes.
During the next few weeks will consider a number of different strategies to help you protect and preserve your estate for you and your loved ones.
Benjamin Franklin once said that ‘nothing is certain but death and taxes’. This means that in the event that something happens, you and your loved ones can focus on the things that matter most, without worrying about financial complications that haven’t been planned for.
Providing for your loved ones after you die is obviously an important issue. Yet, poor planning could cost your beneficiaries hundreds of thousands of pounds in Inheritance Tax (IHT). Once considered a tax on the affluent, it is now affecting more estates. However, it is possible to significantly reduce the amount of IHT your beneficiaries may pay, or even pay none at all.
As we get older and we are more financially secure, it is only natural that we consider the future for our children and grandchildren. However, the situation is brought into sharper focus by the fact that a lack of planning may well reduce the amount that we are able to leave to our children and grandchildren.
