Succession and Estate Planning
Taking the first steps in deciding what should happen to your assets during your lifetime and after you’re gone can be daunting, but it is undoubtedly easier for your wishes to be carried out if there is a clear plan in place.
Complex rules and constant changes to tax legislation, including those made to Inheritance Tax (IHT), mean that planning is vital to ensure that you benefit from the available exemptions and reliefs.
Taking time to structure your affairs now can help maximise the wealth you pass on, and can protect loved ones from unexpected tax liabilities.
How we can help
A review of your affairs can help us to establish your current tax exposure and provide advice on the best options available. This often involves reducing the value of your estate through gifting or structuring future growth, family investment companies, life insurance policies, or other estate and succession planning methods.

- Inheritance Tax Planning
- Utilising exemptions and maximising tax reliefs
- Appropriate ownership structure of assets

How to plan for Successful Succession
Succession planning is the strategic process of identifying the future leaders of your business; those who will take over when current leaders step down.
We all live increasingly busy lives, so finding time to actively plan and manage our future finances can be challenging.
Personal taxation has never been so complicated: increased legislation from HMRC and changing family circumstances such as marriage or divorce, planning for school or university fees, retirement and long term care, mean that staying on top of your financial affairs is more important than ever.
