IHT Plans

Planning to reduce the impact on your client’s legacy

As you know, Inheritance Tax (IHT) planning is no longer reserved for the very rich. In 2012/13 around £3.1bn was taken in IHT receipts. By 2015/16, this increased to just over £4.6bn – an increase of over 48%!

IHT Receipts  

With house prices continuing to rise, IHT is likely to apply to many of your clients whose total assets exceed the £325,000 IHT limit for 2017/2018.

This means there are a number of opportunities for you to help your clients:

  • Planning for IHT on their own estates
  • Helping beneficiaries manage their inheritance.

Prudence Inheritance Bond

This innovative product aims to provide clients with a flexible income stream while providing a capital sum on death for beneficiaries.

Its exceptional structure means that it offers three distinctive features:

  • A natural income stream: it pays the income naturally generated by the investment, so this will not eat into the beneficiaries' inheritance.
  • Flexibility to take or save the natural income: any natural income not required can be reinvested for the future in a choice of funds and taken at any time. It will be treated as part of the clients estate for IHT purposes.
  • Potential income tax benefits: it is designed to minimise the chance of chargeable event gain on death, which could mean a substantial saving.
