Inheritance Tax and Estate Planning
SheridanLaw Solicitors in Kingston, Surrey, has the experience to guide you through this complex area. Our approach is to consider all of your financial and family circumstances and assess the relative merits of the various options open to you.
Failure to plan for Inheritance Tax can have serious implications; not only for the wealthy, but also for those with relatively modest estates who might never have thought that Inheritance Tax would affect them.
We find that problems often arise where the largest asset in the estate is the family home. If your home is worth more than £325,000 (the threshold at which Inheritance Tax has become payable since 6 April 2009), your beneficiaries might be forced to sell the home in order to meet the Inheritance Tax liability. This is increasingly common in Kingston, Surrey and the surrounding areas where the average house price in 2009 was over £300,000. Many of our clients do not want to put their families in the position of having to sell the family home, and seek our advice in this regard.
SheridanLaw has connections with accountants and other professionals in the Kingston, Surrey area, and where appropriate is able to work with them to provide you with an effective service that addresses all financial and legal considerations.
