Join our webinar and Q&A on Wednesday 10 June at 2pm for a practical focus on recent changes affecting inheritance tax (IHT).

This webinar was originally scheduled as one of our regional double tax and trusts seminars for April and May. We continue to review ways to deliver our Section offering to you online and will keep you updated.

This interactive one-hour webinar will provide a traditional IHT case law and planning update. 

It will cover:

  • civil partnership and marriage – tax pros and cons, for clients considering a new status
  • a case law update considering:
    • Vincent, rights to occupy and trusts of property
    • HMRC v Staveley and pension planning towards the end of life
    • Barclays Wealth case and excluded property settlements
    • Routier case outcome and the definition of ‘charity’.
  • changes to client guidance in light of the Office of Tax Simplification IHT report and All-Party Parliamentary Group reports on intergenerational tax fairness
  • lifetime planning to make best use of the residence nil rate band for married and unmarried couples.

This webinar is inclusive to Private Client Section members. It will use our new learning management system and will be available OnDemand. 

SRA continuing competency code: A2, B1, D3.
