  • Any investment growth is outside the client's estate

This calculator is based on our understanding, of current taxation, legislation and HM Revenue & Customs practice, all of which may change without notice. The impact of taxation (and any tax reliefs) depends on individual circumstances. All Prudential calculators are designed to give a general demonstration. They should not be taken as offering advice or any recommendation. Every care has been taken as to its accuracy, but it must be appreciated that neither Prudential nor its representatives can accept any responsibility for loss, however caused, suffered by any person who has acted or refrained from acting as a result of material contained in our calculators.
