Whether it involves handing on the stewardship of a landed estate, arranging for younger generations to take on a family company, or simply passing on the benefit of private wealth, succession is at the front of many of our clients' minds and will often be the main motivation for any tax and estate planning.

 

It is important to view succession planning as part of a long-term exercise.  Deciding which assets to hand on or retain, and when to do so, can be an important part of this. 

Frequently, succession planning is coupled with maximising available inheritance and capital gains tax reliefs, in order to ensure that the assets concerned can be passed on, intact, without an onerous tax liability.  This will normally involve a detailed analysis of a client's assets.  Some assets may not be integral to the overall running of the enterprise concerned and may not qualify for any tax reliefs, so could be suitable for giving away in the nearer future.  Others may not qualify for tax reliefs at present, but may be a central part of the client's estate, and, given the right conditions, may potentially qualify for reliefs in future.

Take advice early

Tax reliefs cannot always be secured quickly, so it is vital to take advice early in order to secure them before it is too late.

Of Peter Greswold: "Peter's peers praise him for being a "trustworthy source of expertise." His practice consists mainly of advising clients on tax matters affecting their business interests."

Of Marie-Louise Hamilton: "I rate her very highly - she is very much an expert in the field."
