How to Save Inheritance Tax
Effective inheritance tax planning could save your family hundreds of thousands of pounds.
This comprehensive yet easy to read guide tells you everything you need to know about protecting your assets from the taxman.
The 13th edition of How to Save Inheritance Tax was published in May 2016 and is completely up to date (unaffected by November 2016 Autumn Statement).
Inheritance tax planning has become more important than ever, following the Government's decision to freeze the £325,000 lifetime exemption. Inflation is eroding its value every year, dragging more families into the tax net.
The guide is packed full of practical examples and tax planning ideas. Over more than a decade it has acquired a reputation as the most comprehensive inheritance tax planning book in the UK.
