Our specialist team at Grant Saw firstly determines the size and nature of the client’s estate and then we look at all the possible tax exemptions which are legally acceptable and relevant to the estate in question. We encourage clients to participate in estate planning to reduce the probability of being responsible for exorbitant inheritance tax liabilities. We pride ourselves on world class service by a highly trained team and also cater for disabled clients, with full wheelchair access at the Greenwich and Blackheath offices”.

Clients are urged to schedule appointments with the team of specialists at Grant Saw Solicitors LLP to discuss important issues regarding inheritance tax planning. Discussions can be done by phone or email or by means of a face-to-face meeting, whichever method is preferential to the client. The initial meeting would allow the solicitors to determine the size of the inheritance tax liability and propose cost saving options.
There are many options available to reduce the liability of inheritance tax, which will be discussed with the client by the tax solicitor. These would include lifetime gifts of assets, subject to the seven-year rule, the creation of trusts, restructuring of the ownership of assets, maximising the benefits of inheritance tax allowances, as well as exemptions and reliefs. The options are not limited to this list; therefore, it is imperative to call in the specialist team at Grant Saw Solicitors LLP for leading advice.
