Tax Planning

Inheritance Tax Planning

Inheritance Tax is currently payable by your estate at the rate of 40% on anything above the nil rate band. It can have a large impact on larger estates, especially with the relative increase in value of the family home in recent years.

There are various ways that the effect of this tax on your eventual estate can be mitigated, either through Lifetime or Will planning.

Each case is different and we can provide bespoke advice for your particular circumstances and the tax reliefs available.

Please contact David Bawn in Newcastle or Michael Macgregor in Hexham.
