In this webinar, a panel of experts discuss how working together as a team they can help you organise your wealth to ensure you enjoy your retirement years, leave your family a financial gift and leave a donation to charity in your Will, if that’s what you’d like to do.
The importance of a legacy plan
Understanding who you want to leave your money to and who will benefit is a great starting point for any financial planning. But as more people are wanting to leave to charity, it's vital to take advice on how to structure your estate and understand which assets are accountable for inheritance tax*. Passing on wealth needs to be well considered and planned, and your Will* is important to ensure your wishes are followed through to best effect.
Why is it important to seek financial advice when writing a Will
- A Will is just one piece of an estate planning and how an individual’s assets will be managed
- Various strategies can be used to structure your finances to be tax efficient on an estate
- Reduction in Inheritance Tax (if you leave more than 10% of the net value of your estate to charity)
- A financial adviser can help you create trusts to make arrangements for dependent children
In most cases, you will not pay inheritance tax if your estate is worth less than £325,000. The same will apply if you leave anything above this threshold to any of the following your spouse, civil partner, a charity or a community amateur sports club.
It’s possible to pay a reduced rate of 36% down from 40% inheritance tax on some assets if you give 10% or more of your estate to charity.
