About This Event
Co-hosted with the WestBridge Group, our Tax Clinics are designed as a forum for advisers to discuss their tax related client issues with experts and find appropriate solutions in a friendly and relaxed meeting.
Hosted by Matthew Steiner from Stellar and Tom Moore from WestBridge Group, our tax clinic answer questions on the basics and the more complex areas of utilising Business Relief (BR) strategies.
This clinic will provide a forum for advisers to discuss tax related issues and gain insight into the more complicated areas of inheritance tax and estate planning.
BR enables qualifying assets that have been owned for at least two years to be passed on free from inheritance tax. Established in 1976, BR has grown in prominence as a tool for clients to protect their legacy faster than traditional methods like gifts and trusts whilst retaining access to their capital.
Our speakers will share their experience and answer questions around the following themes:
- The benefits and risks of BR-qualifying investments
- Common scenarios where your clients could benefit from BR
- What the future of BR planning could look like
