legal advice and support on reducing inheritance tax & estate planning

Without inheritance tax planning your family could be faced with a large tax liability when you die, considerably reducing the amount your love ones receive.

If you die and leave an estate valued at over £325,000, your beneficiaries may be liable to pay inheritance tax at 40% of the value of your assets over and above that amount.

by taking advice on inheritance tax planning you may be able to:

  • Reduce Inheritance Tax
  • Keep your assets within your family
  • Protect your assets from the need to fund long term care in later life
  • Protect your Nil Rate Band if you were to die and your partner re-marry
  • Protect assets passed to children / grandchildren from the risk of them becoming bankrupt or divorced

At Watson Thomas Solicitors, we can advise you on a number of methods which may help in reducing Inheritance Tax liability on your death. This may involve the creation of Trusts during your lifetime or the preparation of a tax efficient Will for you. If you already have a Will, we can advise you on whether there are any changes you ought to consider making to help reduce the inheritance tax liability of your estate on your death.

our wills and probate services include:

Some Kind Words

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you & your team for making a really stressful situation pretty much stress free. You’ve been great & im so happy the whole situation is almost behind me...

Thank you (and your team) for your help with my ‘matrimonial affairs’. I wish you and your team all the best for the future, it looks very bright to me!.

You may have gathered already that I am very happy with the result of the Hearing. I'm convinced that a less capable, or less engaged legal team would not have been able to achieve such a result...

A huge thank you for your patience during my long drawn-out divorce! I hope my friends and family never have to experience divorce, but if they do I'd highly recommend Watson Thomas Solicitors....
