Gorvins Approach to Inheritance Tax Planning

Our team of Inheritance Tax Solicitors have expert knowledge and experience in this area of law. By offering practical guidance through inheritance tax issues we can reduce the amount of unnecessary tax you pay to ensure you and your family make the most of your wealth.

Inheritance Tax is charged at 40% on the value of your estate when you die, however it is our job to help reduce your tax liability by offering advice on the valuable exemptions available to you and your estate.

How can I reduce by Inheritance Tax Bill?

Inheritance Tax is paid on a person’s estate (their property, money and possessions) if it is worth more than £325,000 when they die, for which the rate is 40% on anything above that threshold. With a little forward planning and professional help there are many ways to protect your assets and reduce your bill so the money goes to your loved ones rather than the tax office.

There are many exemptions and reliefs that we can advise you upon. These include:

  • Spouse/Civil Partner Exemption
  • Charity Exemption
  • Agricultural or Business Property Relief
  • Gift Exemptions
  • Gifts on Marriage
  • Maintenance Gifts

How Can Gorvins Help?

Our dedicated, knowledgeable and friendly team can guide you through the process step-by-step.

As all of our Wills, Trusts and Probate solicitors are either STEP qualified or training to become STEP qualified we are in the perfect position to help you plan. STEP is an advanced professional qualification in the field of Estate Planning and stands for the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners. We like to go above and beyond our duties by providing you with a truly professional service and experience.
