Gaining Advantage Together

Making provisions for your loved ones after your gone is a fundamental part of managing your estate and assets.

Without careful tax planning advice, inheritance tax - a duty paid on your property and belongings after death - can take a sizable portion out of the gift you wish to pass on.

Charged at 40%, Inheritance Tax is applied to property; cash in bank accounts and personal belongings, foreign assets and even assets you have given away in the last seven years.

Based in York and Lincoln and helping clients across the UK, our friendly team of solicitors offer expert inheritance tax planning advice, helping you plan your estate, making it as tax efficient as possible to maximise the benefit of your financial legacy.

Succession Planning

When it comes to business and estates, ensuring that management and ownership is transferred efficiently to the next generation is vital for continuity. Where families or estates and their interests are large or complex, early planning is advised.


Setting up trusts can be a flexible and tax effective way to provide for your loved ones. There are plenty of options to choose from and we can help you select the right ones to suit your particular needs.
