IHT Mitigation

IHT Mitigation

IF ALL your assets (including those abroad) exceed the nil-rate band (currently £325,000, or £650,000 for couples), then 40% of the excess is payable to HMRC as Inheritance Tax (IHT) before Probate is granted.

TO AVOID this unwelcome levy, legitimate avoidance measures can be taken, such as conversion of property ownerships to Tenants-in-Common, incorporating Discretionary Clauses into Wills, executing post-death Instruments of Variation, etc.

THIS CALLS for competent professional guidance at the highest level of expertise, and without delay.
