About the event

About the Seminar:

This live event sees industry leaders John Douglas of Finesco and Euan Fernie of Geoghegans explore how preparing a will review summary of all assets within the Chargeable Estate in a ‘draft inventory’ form can assist with consideration and re-evaluation of the extent of any existing IHT issues.

This seminar will highlight vital multiple planning mechanisms available to your clients through taxation and legislation to potentially mitigate IHT issues.

Why should I watch?

After this session you will be able to:

Identify the importance of utilising a robust system for will reviews

Understand how to prepare a draft inventory assessment and indicative IHT calculation

Utilise possible solutions to mitigate any existing IHT issues:-

The use of the capital exemptions

The 7 year rule

Loan Trust and Discounted Gift Trusts

The much underused Gift Out of Income rule: school fee planning and Junior ISAs for grandchildren

The 2 year gifting period: Enterprise Investment Schemes and Business Property Relief structures

Family Investment Companies

This event will bring you up to speed with the latest thinking and will also equip you with valuable knowledge to add value to your client proposition. This seminar is aimed at experienced practitioners who advise private clients on inheritance tax matters.
