Inheritance tax ( IHT ) is a major issue for many more people now than ever was the case in the past.

This is not a tax that will go away.

Inheritance Tax Planning can help mitigate against any potential Inheritance Tax Liability.

We can do our best to take steps so that the potential IHT payable is reduced, or even eradicated.

Most people will be unable to arrange their affairs so that no / reduced IHT is payable on their estates.

Some of the ways to reduce the potential IHT payable on death are listed below:

• Properly drafted Wills
• The Use of Trusts
• Pensions
• Lifetime Gifts
• Loan Trusts and Discounted Gift Trusts
• Specialised Legal Advice

Financial Conduct Authority do not necessarily regulate all forms of IHT planning
