Do your planning early. Inheritance Tax still holds out the potential of being a voluntary tax. You don't have to give the money to anyone other than those you want to provide for. As we are qualified to handle non-contentious probate matters, we are in the best position to help. We will start by setting out what would happen if you do nothing; we'll then give you some options; and once you have decided what you want to do, we can help implement your plans. We approach it this way, because everyone is different. We'll do everything we can to keep the explanations of even complex plans as simple as possible. The main aim is that your legacy works, that it passes into safe hands just as you intend and isn't hijacked either by HMG or other undesirables.
