Clients We’ve Helped – Inheritance Tax Reduction

Sandra Allday

Objective: Inheritance Tax Reduction

  • 71 years old
  • Widowed
  • Diagnosed with aggressive Bowel Cancer
  • Life expectancy 2 years or less
  • Total Estate – £1,125,000
  • Inheritance Tax Liability: £190,000

 

The Solution

We re-organised Sandra’s existing Savings & Investments which came to £475,000, into Inheritance Tax Exempt Investments. These would be outside of her estate for Inheritance Tax purposes, as long as she survived 2 years.

The Outcome

Sandra survived the 2 years, which will save her two daughters £190,000 in Inheritance Tax when she eventually passes away.

Sandra has remained in complete control of her investments. They are still in her name and she has full access to this money, in case she ever needs it.
