Making the most of your money
Tax planning is a complex yet vital part of a sound financial plan. Effective financial planning minimises the impact that tax has on your wealth. For those that run a business or have multiple sources of income, then tax can become even more complex. However, when we develop your financial plan, we will ensure we implement the most tax efficient ways for you to invest and grow your money. Whether this is in the form of a basic ISA, or establishing trusts, we will help you to maximise the wealth you can pass on.
Every year UK residents over pay billions of pounds in tax and it is our job to ensure you don’t. There are many legitimate ways in which the government enables you to reduce your tax bill. For most, these opportunities remain unknown, but that’s where we can help.
Common areas of tax planning
ISAs have been around for many years now. However, many people remain unaware of the benefits that they can bring – in particular, how they can positively impact the amount of tax you pay.
Pensions are often a key part to any financial plan. Making sufficient payments into your personal pension enables you to benefit from tax relief.
Inheritance tax is one particular area that often requires additional consideration and is an important part of estate planning. The residence nil rate band (RNRB) significantly impacts the amount of tax owed so it is important to understand if your estate is entitled to RNRB.
Capital gains tax
Capital gains tax (CGT) relates to the tax that is owed on the profit of an asset which you sell or dispose of. Each year you can make a certain amount in capital gains before having to pay tax and it is important to build this into your overall financial plan.
