Inheritance tax planning service

Specialist IHT portfolio service

Do you know how much inheritance tax (IHT) may have to be paid on your estate? Inheritance tax is paid on the value of your estate when you die, but it can also apply to some financial gifts you make during your lifetime. Careful and expert inheritance tax planning now is vital to ensure you’re able to pass on more of your wealth to the people and causes you choose.

Our inheritance tax planning and IHT portfolio service is all about passing on as much of your estate as possible, while also giving you flexibility and control over your arrangements.

Calculate your inheritance tax

IHT is payable on the value of anything you leave behind when you die. The IHT rate is 40% and due on any amount above £325,000 for an individual.

IHT planning and passing on wealth – how we can help

Your dedicated wealth planner will spend time making sure they understand your personal goals and plans for your heirs, as they could affect the inheritance tax payable on your estate. They will then develop a forward-thinking strategy to help achieve your objectives, aiming to maintain your lifestyle and legitimately manage the IHT due on your estate.

Importantly, they will also advise you on the right order to do things in, so as not to harm your IHT position or impact other areas of your wealth planning.

Our inheritance tax planning services include:

  • Cash flow modelling– Using cash flow modelling to create a robust forecast of your future income and expenditure, so you don’t spend or give away more than you can afford.
  • Making the most of your allowances  - Making the most of the allowances available to you, to maximise tax efficiency, such as those gifts no longer included in your estate for IHT purposes, even if you die within seven years of making them.
  • Gifting excess income and assets – Working with you to decide what income and assets you can comfortably afford to give away, to manage your estate's IHT liability.
  • Specialist investments – Advising on how certain investments can be used to manage your IHT liability while offering growth potential to enhance your legacy. If you already invest through our investment management service, your wealth planner will work closely with your investment manager to restructure your portfolio.

Inheritance tax portfolio service

Canaccord Genuity’s own IHT portfolio is a relatively simple and efficient strategy for managing IHT as most AIM shares qualify for business relief and offers growth potential.

It invests in a diversified range of established, profitable companies chosen from the Alternative Investment Market (AIM). Once you've held an investment in certain AIM companies for two years, it no longer counts as part of your estate for IHT purposes, which is favourable to the seven-year rule for gifts and simple trust transfers.

Why choose our IHT portfolio service?

  • We have a strong track record for delivering superior investment returns
  • We actively manage the IHT portfolio so if we decide that the investments we’ve chosen are no longer suitable, or if they stop being eligible for Business Relief (BR), we can sell them. We can then reinvest the proceeds in another qualifying company without having to restart the two-year period.
  • Investing in AIM lets you take advantage of a dynamic market of growing businesses
  • Your inheritance tax portfolio can be included in your annual ISA allowance, so you benefit from tax-free growth
  • You will be kept regularly updated with contract notes and quarterly formal valuations.

This service should be regarded as high risk as it is exclusively focused on equities. The portfolios are wholly invested in small capitalisation stocks. These companies are therefore more volatile and whilst they offer great potential, growth is not guaranteed. It is important to note that this should be seen as a long-term investment. The current inheritance tax rules and tax treatment of AIM shares may change in the future. We strongly recommend that clients discuss their financial arrangements with their tax adviser before investing, as the value of any tax reliefs available is subject to individual circumstances.
