What is Estate Planning?
Estate Planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an estate during a persons life. Estate Planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximise the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses.
What is Inheritance Tax?
Inheritance Tax is a tax which can arise where a beneficiary receives an inheritance as a result of someone dying which exceeds the government allowance. The beneficiary is responsible for paying the tax.
When you die the government will assess how much your estate is worth, they will deduct any debts from this to give you the value of the estate. Assets Include:
Cash in the Bank
Property & Businesses Owned
Pay Outs from Life Insurance Policies
