Inheritance tax planning
We understand that an important part of inheritance planning is minimising tax on your assets and estate.
Our specialist solicitors have many years of experience working with individuals, trusts and beneficiaries to create the best possible outcome. We take into consideration your unique needs to help minimise the impact of inheritance and capital gains tax and to maximise the tax reliefs.
- Advice on available tax reliefs and exemptions
- Advice on the most tax efficient way of disposing of your assets and making gifts
- Restructuring of your assets and how they are owned, to mitigate tax

Personal succession planning
In addition to making a Will, it is also sensible to consider lifetime succession planning. Our specialist solicitors can help you pass on your assets to your family during your lifetime in a tax effective way. This can be particularly important if you hold shares in a family business.
Working closely with our colleagues in other areas of GL Law, we will consider your circumstances and set out clearly the options available to you in planning your future. Once you have made a decision, we will work with you to ensure your wishes are implemented.
The succession planning service we offer is personal to you and therefore the relationship between you and your adviser is paramount. This will involve getting to know you and your family situation well so that we can provide you with a bespoke service tailored to your individual circumstances.
Asset Protection Review
From setting up trusts and lifetime giving, to restructuring business assets and succession planning, our Asset Protection Review provides you with a strategy to protect your private wealth. We will review your personal situation and advise on the advantages and disadvantages of available asset protection tools and legal strategies.
The Asset Protection Review costs £450 +vat.
