Wealth Planning & Asset Protection

There are two forms of asset protection, which are often pursued together:

The implementation of advance planning which legally place assets beyond the reach of:

  • Future potential creditors
  • Forced heirship or
  • Matrimonial rules.

The adoption of planning which legally places assets outside the estate for inheritance tax purposes. This is usually achieved through:

  • Converting into ‘business property relief’ qualifying assets
  • Maximising lifetime gifts
  • Using tax-efficient trust structures such as excluded property trusts.
