At Butcher & Barlow we understand the importance of planning for the future. Research shows that more than two thirds of people in the UK do not have a Will in place. For many people, making sure that they have a Will in place can be overlooked or even considered unnecessary. However, the consequences of passing away without a Will can often make an already difficult time for your loved ones further complicated as they are left without clear instructions of your wishes.
The Private Client team here at Butcher & Barlow are able to provide expert advice in order to ensure peace of mind whatever your circumstances.
Whether your affairs are straightforward or require a more detailed analysis of business interests, general succession planning or inheritance tax issues, we will evaluate your circumstances and tailor our advice to your specific needs. Our aim is to make the process as simple and easy to understand as possible.
The expertise of the Private Client team extends to keeping up to date with all the relevant changes in the law that may be applicable to your individual circumstances. The introduction of the transferable nil rate band in 2007 and the more recent residence nil rate band in April 2017 means that there are now a number of inheritance tax planning considerations. These need to be considered and examined in order to provide you with a comprehensive service in relation to your financial affairs.
Our team will work closely with your other professional advisors such as accountants or financial advisors to ensure that any advice offered truly meets yours and your family’s needs.
