Hill Dickinson ‘death tax’ seminar

Organiser: Hill Dickinson

International law firm Hill Dickinson will host a seminar on 3 May to advise homeowners and investors on how to reduce the worry for loved ones by protecting their property value from inheritance tax (IHT).

Held in conjunction with financial planning firm Sanlam Private Wealth, the IHT planning seminar will discuss the issues surrounding inheritance tax, how to plan finances around them, and how they impact upon wills and estate management.

Despite the popular belief that IHT only applies to the wealthy, the growth in property prices has seen more people than ever become susceptible to the 'death tax'. Held at Oakfield Manor House, Chester Zoo, partners from Hill Dickinson's private client team will advise guests that IHT is 'no monkey business' and highlight ways to mitigate this to secure the future for loved ones.

Ian Sydenham, Partner, Private Client, at Hill Dickinson commented: "The threshold for IHT is currently £325,000, so if homeowners factor in other investments, this makes a large proportion of them vulnerable to the tax. By offering advice from a legal and financial planning perspective, guests will leave with the tools to protect their property and other valuable assets."

Nigel Speirs, chief executive of Sanlam Private Wealth, commented: "We are delighted to be hosting a seminar alongside Hill Dickinson. We feel that clients should have regular reviews of their financial circumstances with a qualified financial planner. This can help them to identify, in simple terms how they should plan to mitigate their Inheritance Tax liability".

The IHT planning seminar will be held on Thursday 3 May 2012, from 8:30am – 10:45am at Oakfield Manor House, Chester Zoo, Upton by Chester, Chester CH2 1LH.
