Inheritance Tax 

Inheritance tax is currently charged at 40% and affects many UK families, even those with modest wealth. This is mainly due to the rise in property values over the last few years and it is estimated that millions of UK homeowners may now fall within the clutches of this tax.

Proper inheritance tax planning could save your family thousands of pounds. Contrary to what you may think, inheritance tax is regarded as one of the most avoidable of taxes.

Ridley & Hall can provide you with an assessment of your potential tax liability on death and discuss with you proper planning to mitigate any tax due. If you want to address tax issues in your lifetime as well as in your Will, we can put you in touch with an independent financial advisor that will be able to help you.

What our clients say:

  • We found the service you offered excellent.  It was extremely friendly, clear and concise, and the communication was informative and speedy with a minimum of fuss.  Sympathetic in the circumstances too.  P.S. Girls on reception – totally lovely, very personable and helpful.

  • All work carried out to our complete satisfaction. Thank you.

  • Jill was very kind and friendly making me feel at ease!

  • I would like to thank the both of you for your help with this matter. I did not realise what being an executor entailed. I know that things like this are an every day part of your jobs, and probably other wills are more complex. Again, though, thank you very much.

  • Jill dealt with us and helped a lot by explaining clearly.  She was very kind to two old people!

  • A first class service, professionally executed in an efficient and timely manner.  A perfect service – so improvements not applicable.

  • The initial appointment was excellent. We were very impressed at being able to have a home visit. Jill was clear, patient and understanding at this sensitive time.

  • As always, very happy with the service from Ridley & Hall. Jill is very professional and efficient in dealing with our wills. We have recommended her to our parents.

  • I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done recently on behalf of me and my late mother. You activated the power of attorney my late mother had set up some years ago, you organised with a colleague the sale of her home and, latterly, you sorted out the probate on her estate. I’m hoping that I won’t have the need of your services again, in the near future anyway, but I do appreciate your expertise and the very friendly and personal way in which you have handled these matters.

  • To all who were dealing with my mother’s estate, I just want to thank you for all the support you have given me throughout from my mother making this Will with you. It has been a very difficult situation to have been in all these years, trying to get people to listen to me but I got there in the end and you were the people who actually listened.
