Memorial Bench

Very few people intend to leave money to the HM Revenue & Customs! Fitzhugh Gates Solicitors can advise you on inheritance tax planning, both on lifetime gifts and trusts and on your death.

We will help you leave a will that will minimise the effect of inheritance tax on your estate and we will explain to you the various exemptions and reliefs that can make all the difference when it comes to probate. We will also advise you on how this relates to capital gains tax (CGT) and income tax, taking into consideration recent and planned changes in the law.

Your financial advisor in partnership with our private client team can make sure that your family receives as much of your estate as is possible within the current legislation.
