Inheritance tax is a tax that may potentially be due on the value of your assets forming part of your estate after you pass. This may include your possessions, investments and property.
The amount, if any, of Inheritance tax due will depend on both the value of your estate and the beneficiaries. Therefore, the most economical solution for your estate will require expert investigating and planning. Drafting an inheritance tax efficient Will, will ensure your beneficiaries have the best chance of inheriting the maximum from your estate.
