This allowed us to have an active Inheritance Tax (IHT) planning process, with both donors and recipients in full knowledge of the overall objective.
In working with their daughter, Mary and her family, and their son, Neil and his wife, we had transparency through the generations and as a result passed some of the assets directly to grandchildren.
Kevin had an extensive share portfolio that had significant capital gains tax issues. Over a period of years we reduced the portfolio, making gifts to the family where possible and re-investing. These tax efficient investments not only provided him with a sustainable income but reduced the impact of IHT in the process.
We continue to work with all three generations and hope to do so for many years to come.
