Will Your Estate be Subject to UK Inheritance Tax?

Will Your Estate be Subject to UK Inheritance Tax?


Martin Rimmer, Head of Tax for Select Investors, St. James's Place


We spend years planning our finances for the run up to retirement, but sooner or later the emphasis must shift to planning for life in retirement. This is not just about generating a sustainable level of income after inflation, but about protecting our estates from the effects of Inheritance Tax.

Inheritance Tax is the most punitive tax in the UK and normally applies to your world-wide estate, even whilst you live in Hong Kong. Yet, at the same time, it is often described as a voluntary tax. We don’t disagree.

Join Martin Rimmer, Head of Tax for Select Investors, to find out why, as he unpacks and simplifies this subject, and gives you his recommendations for your own succession planning.
