With the right strategy in place, you could help to reduce a potential inheritance tax bill. Planning ahead could be one of the most important things you can do.

  • Do you know how much your estate is worth?

Inheritance tax was once a tax aimed at only the very wealthy. However, increasing house prices have led to a rise in the number of people who might have an inheritance tax liability. A Skipton financial adviser will review your current financial situation – including the value of your estate. Following on from this, they’ll be able to calculate if – and how much – inheritance tax could be due on your estate. 

  • Are you aware of the steps you could take to protect your legacy? 

Inheritance tax can be complicated, which is why speaking to an expert could make all the difference in the choices you make. A Skipton adviser will come up with a plan specific to your needs.

  • You don’t need to worry about upfront fees

A Skipton adviser will clearly explain any recommendations they have to address any IHT liability. Charges will only apply if you ask them to implement your plan, and these will be clearly explained before you proceed. You'll have the time you need to decide if you'd like to act on Skiptons advice.
