Tax Planning Solicitors
Helping you to minimise tax liabilities for you and your family, including income tax, inheritance tax and capital gains tax
Our tax specialists give advice on all aspects of lifetime capital tax planning to a broad range of clients spanning farmers, professional individuals and families with complicated financial arrangements. We help you protect your assets and plan for the future making sure that you minimise your and your heirs’ tax liabilities.
Sometimes it makes sense to make gifts to loved ones while you are still alive to see them enjoy it. In such cases, you need to take into account capital gains tax and inheritance tax. If you choose to gift through your Will then you will need to take into account inheritance tax. With tailored advice to suit your specific situation, it may be possible to minimise the different liabilities.
We take the time to understand your current situation and your wishes for the future before working with you to help you achieve the best possible solution.
Our team is also able to provide advice on:
