Our Estate Planning Services
Wills And Lasting Powers Of Attorney
Dying intestate, i.e., without leaving a Will could allow the government to take your entire estate if no suitable heir is found. Intestacy rules are complicated and, even if your wife or civil partner is legally entitled to get something, there may be limits on that.
Besides, death is not the only event for which you should plan. What if you become physically or mentally incapacitated? Is there someone to act for you? Do they have the required legal power and the appropriate instructions?
The experts at Fusion Financial will help you draw up a Will, or arrange a lasting power of attorney, that is not only legally robust, but takes the fullest advantage of all available tax and other concessions.
An appropriately-structured life insurance policy can reduce Inheritance Tax liability.
But it’s not advisable to buy off-the-shelf, not even by using comparison websites. To be truly beneficial and suited to your personal circumstances, selecting the right policy and/or trust is best done with professional know-how and advice.
Talk to Fusion Financial. We have the knowledge and depth of experience to advise which policy is best for you.
Business Property Relief
If you are the owner or co-owner of a small or medium-sized business, you probably know already that it’s UK government policy to support such SMEs with various tax breaks and other allowances.
You may even know that your interest in such enterprises can qualify for BPR on the Inheritance Tax due when they are passed to your heirs on your death.
But it’s not entirely simple. Not all businesses qualify and even where they do, the amount of BPR can vary with the type of firm. You have to know and understand these wrinkles in order to reap the benefits.
Fusion Financial has long-standing knowledge and understanding of BPR. We will help you ensure that your estate receives all of the relief that’s due.
Trusts And Gifts Inter Vivos
You have worked hard to build your wealth. Naturally, you want to pass it to your heirs as intact, problem-free and easily as possible.
You can give much of it away during your lifetime, but there are restrictions. You can also set up a trust or trusts, to reduce IHT and smooth out many of the trickier aspects of inheritance, such as probate, charitable donations, privacy, life insurance, and so forth.
All you have to do is get in touch with Fusion Financial. We have all of the experience and know-how you need under one roof.
