Specialist areas:

About me:

I help clients and their families to plan for the future by preparing tax efficient wills and lasting powers of attorney

I work with clients to administer the estates of loved ones who have died offering sympathetic and practical support at a very difficult time.

 

Key cases:

  • Utilising an election under EU Regulation 650/2012 to prepare Wills, ensuring that property held in France will not be subject to forced heirship rules
  • Using post death variations to provide asset protection and to mitigate both current and future tax liability
  • Preparing separate business Lasting Powers of Attorney to allow clients to appoint different attorneys to manage their business interests to those they have chosen to look after their personal finances
  • Identifying the availability of the exemption and working with clients to ensure that no inheritance tax was payable in respect of gifts made out of surplus income

My top tip is never under estimate the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your affairs are in order
