Estate Planning

Formulating an estate plan that minimises your tax liability is essential. The more you have, the less you should leave to chance. If your estate is large it could be subject to inheritance tax, which is currently payable where a person’s taxable estate is in excess of £325,000. Even if it is small, planning a well-drafted Will can help to ensure your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes.
