As a firm we can also advise on the rules relating to Inheritance Tax (IHT), which can be notoriously complicated and are presently under review.
When the so-called “death duties” were first introduced it had been intended that they were levied only on the largest estates, but the steady increase in house prices has meant that an increasing number of people have found themselves liable to pay the tax as the years have gone by.
At OGR Stock Denton, our lawyers are able to advise you on how the rules are likely to be applied to any given estate and the options available for reducing your liabilities. We can also offer guidance on matters including lifetime gifts, IHT reliefs and assets exempt from tax
