Inheritance Tax Planning in Bishops-Stortford


Inheritance Tax principally is tax paid as a result of your death on all your estate: house, savings, car, antiques, household items, life policies, cash lump sums, inheritance from parents etc. The first £325,000 is tax-free. Everything over £325,000 is taxed at a rate of 40%.

So, on a total estate of say £400,000, there would be a tax bill to be paid of over £30,000 . This is money that you will not be able to leave to anyone except the taxman! What could your children do with this?.

The very bottom line is whether you would rather give your hard earned money to the taxman or to your children/grandchildren.Let your local estate planner in Bishops-Stortford help you mitigate against Inheritance tax if at all possible.

Trusts in Bishops-Stortford

What is a Trust?

A Trust is a legal arrangement (also known as a "Settlement") that enables you to give away assets but restrict or direct how and when they are used. Trusts can be used to make gifts in your lifetime and they can also be set up under the terms of a Will.

Who are the three main participants?

•The settlor:
this is the person who created the trust and normally gives away the assets that are placed in the trust
•The beneficiary:
this is the person who is to receive the assets or benefit from them. A beneficiary can also be a trustee and/or the settlor.
•The trustee:
this is the person(s) who looks after the assets ensuring they are invested/used in accordance with the rules of the trust and general trust laws.

Making a Lasting Power Of Attorney in Bishops-Stortford



There are two types of Power of Attorney; General and Lasting.

General Power of Attorney:

This is where someone is given legal authority to act on your behalf in financial matters in your best interests e.g. when you are out of the country. It becomes invalid when you lose mental capacity to manage your own affairs. It also stops on your death.

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA):

This is a Power of Attorney which continues after you might become mentally or physically incapable of handling your own affairs. It protects people who may not be able to make some decisions for themselves e.g. those with dementia, learning difficulties, mental health problems, stroke, head injuries, accident or illness.

As part of our will writing service in Bishops-Stortford our estate planners can create your power of attorney either to look after your personal financial or welfare affairs.
