Understanding Inheritance Tax

Inheritance Tax (IHT) is a tax on the estate (property, money, and possessions) of someone who has died. While dealing with such matters may seem overwhelming, with the right planning, it's possible to significantly reduce the amount of IHT payable on your estate. This ensures that your loved ones receive the maximum benefit from your hard-earned assets.
