The Expert Wealth Management Company
Inheritance Tax applies if the estate you wish to pass on after your death is worth more than £325,000 – this is known as the nil-rate band. Your liability for Inheritance Tax is calculated by adding up the sum total of your assets, including:
- Property and land
- Bank accounts
- Jewellery and art
The nil-rate band £325,000, would be subtracted from the total and the remainder is taxed at a rate of 40%. In certain circumstances using the ‘residence nil rate’ band could boost this threshold to £500,000 or even £1,000,000 if exempt gifting between spouses is used.
Inheritance Tax planning helps clients in Bedford to minimise the Inheritance Tax liability, in order to be able to pass more of their estate to loved ones, rather than suffering significant tax charges paid to HMRC. To achieve this Harpur Wealth can explore the use of the ‘residence nil-rate band’, ‘gifting’ and ‘pensions’ as 3 of a number of possible components that can be used in the development of an effective Inheritance Tax strategy.
Bespoke inheritance tax planning for Bedford clients
Wealth management agency providing specialist services
We have learnt that our best work is founded on a clear and comprehensive understanding of our clients’ needs. That’s why we take time to listen; every life is unique, and we tailor our tax planning to each unique client.
Our wealth management advisors provide bespoke inheritance tax strategies, based on our Bedford clients’ existing estate and the beneficiaries they wish to benefit from it. You’ll receive a detailed commentary which explains exactly how the strategy aligns with your requirements.
It’s impossible to eliminate risk from our lives; what we can do, though, is to design strategies that are flexible enough to change if necessary. As a Harpur Wealth Management client, you’ll be invited to regular review meetings where you can discuss any changes that may require adaptation.
