As you accumulate wealth during your life, managing that wealth effectively becomes an important consideration . Typically we find that our clients have two main goals: to have enough money to support the lifestyle they want, and to ensure that their remaining estate is transferred to their next of kin as tax efficiently as possible.
If one of your goals is to leave assets to your family on your death or to gift assets to them during your lifetime, you run the risk of these assets being reduced in value because of Inheritance or Gift Tax.
The professional advice and planning we provide in this area leads to outcomes that significantly reduce the amount that would have otherwise gone in tax. In recent years Inheritance and Gift Tax rates have increased while at the same time the tax-free amount that can be transferred to others has fallen. For these reasons, efficient estate planning has become a more pressing concern for a growing number of people.
