Inheritance Tax

How much is inheritance tax?

No one wants their estate to be subject to more inheritance tax than is absolutely necessary and, for that reason, inheritance tax planning is one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones. With careful forethought, you can ensure that the maximum possible portion of your estate can be passed on to your beneficiaries of choice. Pryce Warner provides inheritance tax planning for clients all around the world, which means we can offer you the best inheritance advice to suit your unique circumstances.

As an expat, although inheritance planning may take a little more consideration, you may also benefit from living in a country with more favourable inheritance tax laws. However, if you have assets in more than one country, we would urge you to take professional advice when it comes to inheritance tax planning so you can set things up to be as advantageous to your beneficiaries as possible.

In the UK, the inheritance threshold of £325,000 for individuals and £650,000 for married couples has been frozen until 2019. This means, as individuals assets grow over the next few years, more and more people will become liable for UK inheritance tax. However, depending upon where you live in the world, you may be subject to less of an inheritance tax liability.
