Estate planning.

Protecting your assets

Contrary to the belief of some, estate planning and  Inheritance Tax not only affects the very rich, but other people may be liable without realising. Few taxes are quite as emotive, or as politicised, as Inheritance Tax.

Above all, the structures into which you transfer your assets can have lasting consequences for you and your family.

At HSC Financial Advisers, we can help you choose structures and trusts designed to protect your assets and give your family lasting benefits.

Estate Planning

Protecting your assets to give your family lasting benefits

It is crucial to find out now if you potentially have an Inheritance Tax liability – or could do so in future years. Points to consider are:

  • Historically, Inheritance Tax planning used to be an activity confined to the very rich.
  • Growing affluence means that this is no longer the case.
  • Families and individuals with a relatively moderate level of wealth should consider planning ahead to ensure that their assets are passed on to their loved ones as efficiently as possible.
  • Property price increases have caused many middle-class working families into the Inheritance Tax bracket.
Chiefly, effective estate planning is about getting the right balance between maintaining access to your money when you need it and saving tax. This is because, in general, the more tax-efficient a solution is, the less access you have to your assets. Safeguarding your own financial future is very important and giving too much away could put this at risk.
