How to Save Inheritance Tax 2021/22

By Carl Bayley BSc FCA

Proper inheritance tax planning could save your family hundreds of thousands of pounds.

This very detailed yet easy to read guide tells you everything you need to know about protecting your assets from the taxman.

The 17th edition of How to Save Inheritance Tax has just been published (May 2021) and is completely up to date.

Inheritance tax planning has become more important than ever following the Government's announcement in the March 2021 Budget that the 325,000 lifetime exemption will remain frozen for another five years - bringing the total period of the freeze to 17 years! With inflation picking up, more and more families are being dragged into the inheritance tax net.

The guide is packed full of practical examples and tax planning ideas. Over more than 15 years it has acquired a reputation as the most comprehensive inheritance tax planning book in the UK.
