Wealth Matters - Autumn 2016
Welcome to the Autumn 2016 edition of Wealth Matters, our regular publication for our UK-based private clients.
This Autumn, we have a new editor-in-chief for Wealth Matters. Charles Hutton is a Private Client partner specialising in Wills, trusts, estate planning and probate.
Wealth Matters seeks to keep you informed on a range of opportunities and developments which may be of interest to you in preserving and passing on your wealth, now and in the future.
In this edition, we look at the potential impact on trusts of the recent SDLT surcharge and highlight potentially valuable inheritance tax reliefs for agricultural and business owners .
We also review the value of pre-marital agreements with specific reference to passing on your wealth in light of your children going through a divorce. Finally, we go back to basics and analyse the role of the executor when dealing with a Will.
If there are topics you would like to see covered in future editions, please get in touch.
