Highlights from our IHT party!

What went on around that round table?

22 May 2015

Inheritance tax roundtable 2015

It was an IHT party around the roundtable, as we hosted our annual TaxAction discussion in partnership with Prudential. It was a meeting of minds from across both the financial and media industries, with our focus being one of the key tax issues from the general election: inheritance tax. We made a lot of headway and some revelations emerged, such as: 

  • People routinely underestimate the value of their assets, so feel they don't need to plan for IHT
  • The older generation in particular needs to be more engaged with IHT planning
  • Bad tax planning can be worse than no tax planning 

Our research has already seen a lot of interest with features in FT AdviserThe Money Pages and International Adviser.  With the IHT threshold set to rise in 2017, how will this impact the advice industry?
