Inheritance Tax & Estate Planning event | Davis Blank Furniss
Laura Willis, Private Client team associate solicitor at DBF Law

Davis Blank Furniss has joined forces with Capstone Financial Management, a Partner Practice of St. James’s Place Wealth Management, and will be staging a free event in Glossop that will provide practical advice and guidance around inheritance tax and estate planning. The free event will be taking place in the evening at Glossop Golf Club on Thursday 13th July 2017.

Inheritance tax has historically been associated with the wealthy, but a person’s property value alone may leave them vulnerable to this tax. The event will give essential, up to date information and guidance about ways to plan to mitigate this tax and reduce the potential worry for families and beneficiaries.

Attendees will hear from three industry experts:

Steve Moy, Senior Pension’s Expert at St. James’s Place, will be covering what assets are at risk of inheritance tax for families, how much you are likely to pay and how to create a plan to ensure you protect your wealth and pass it down to future generations.

Graham Dodd, Senior Manager at Foresight Group, will be discussing effective inheritance tax solutions that can mitigate IHT liabilities quickly and innovative solutions to ensure assets are passed down to beneficiaries.

Finally, Laura Willis, Associate Solicitor in the Private Client team at Davis Blank Furniss, will be summarising general estate and inheritance tax planning, discussing why it is important to keep wills updated, considering opportunities to use trusts for business owners and other individuals in wills to mitigate inheritance tax, explaining the rules of protecting assets from care home fees and talking about the importance of Lasting Powers of Attorney.

The three talks will then be followed by a Q&A session plus food and drink at the Golf Club.

Laura Willis commented: “There’s no doubt that inheritance tax and estate planning are complex so the aim of this event is to cut through the confusion and provide up to date information that people can understand and then apply to their our particular set of circumstances. “

Andrew Williamson, Director at Capstone Financial Management, added: “This event is a great way for local people to find out how inheritance tax could impact them and their families in future. I see more and more of our clients being affected by this tax, which we can easily mitigate with the right financial planning”.

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.

Ben Armitage

“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.

Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber

“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”

Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment

“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

Bill Pryke, CEO, Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors

Robert Amsbury (Conveyancing Client)

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

Valerie Fisher (Probate Client)

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”

Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland

“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”

Anon (Personal Injury client)

“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
