We discuss this topic of tax efficient solutions within our series on succession planning because we understand that many of our clients are compelled by the tax benefits of these, but don’t understand the risks or rules that apply. In this podcast we delve deeper into the parameters of what is possible and the risks to consider to help you make an informed decision on your own financial planning.
In this interview you will hear about the enormous success of EIS schemes in the past 26 years – amassing over £20 billion of funds for the small start up companies and how BR can help bridge the gap on the seven year gifting issue for IHT purposes.
Interestingly, Shane goes on to let us know how the companies themselves are selected to be included in the schemes; “management is key” – and for the investors themselves, he explains the key considerations: risk and liquidity.
Chris notes: “Tax efficient solutions fall within my area of expertise, and we have a large amount of experience in advising suitable clients for a number of reasons and across many providers”.
At Strabens Hall, our team of experienced financial advisers work frequently with families and individuals to support their succession planning requirements, particularly for IHT planning.
