UK Succession and Tax

In an uncertain economic and political climate protecting your personal wealth has never been so important.   Ever changing laws and legislation make it even more difficult to get the right plans in place.

Whether active in work or retired, land owner, farmer or entrepreneur, whatever walk of life, if you have high value assets the right advisors can help you plan for your own future and think about how you might eventually pass assets on.  This might involve tax planning for you, your company or your partnership, the drafting and funding of trusts, preparing Wills and lasting powers of attorney, structuring foreign assets, charitable giving to name but a few.
