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 12th edition of How to Save Inheritance Tax has just been published (Jan 2014) and is completely up to date.
Inheritance tax planning has become more important than ever, following the Government's decision to freeze the £325,000 lifetime exemption. Inflation will erode its value every year, dragging more families into the tax net.
The guide is packed full of practical examples and tax planning ideas. Over the last 10 years it has acquired a reputation as the most comprehensive inheritance tax planning book in the UK.
