You have probably worked hard for most of your life in order to provide for your family. It's quite natural to want to ensure that this continues when you are no longer here. Inheritance tax planning is one very effective way of maximising your assets.

This is particularly important if you lose mental capacity, or if you have already handed over power of attorney. Clear and robust inheritance tax planning can help in situations involving mental health issues.

If your wealth and assets exceed the government prescribed threshold, the estate will be liable for inheritance tax. IHT is usually – but not always – payable upon death.
