Inheritance Tax Planning
Inheritance Tax Planning is an area of financial planning that is often misunderstood and neglected. Changes in legislation and your circumstances can negatively impact wealth protection strategies that you have implemented. That’s why it’s crucial that your Inheritance Tax Planning is in safe and expert hands. When you choose to work with us, you can look forward to regular reviews of your estate, taking into account incoming legislation and how it will affect you and your beneficiaries.
Nothing in life is guaranteed, and that of course includes your health and wellbeing. Implementing measures to protect you and your family should you fall ill is of paramount importance. Here at Glencairn Financial Planning, we can suggest a range of options to protect you and your family financially until you are back on your feet.
Finding the mortgage that is right for you and your circumstances forms the bedrock of your financial security. Whether you are a first-time buyer, moving home or wish to take advantage of a more competitive rate, it is vital that you have the right mortgage in place.
Being a self-employed barrister on a variable income can bring its own challenges. We work with a St. James’s Place Practice which specialises in sourcing a comprehensive range of mortgages from across the marketplace which lenders make available to mortgage intermediaries to meet an array of needs and criteria.
The value of an investment with St. James's Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds selected and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than the amount invested.
The levels and bases of taxation, and reliefs from taxation, can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.
