IFA publishes guide to IHT avoidance


The David Aaron Partnership has published a new guide to &#39Avoiding and Reducing Inheritance Tax&#39


The guide incorporates changes made in this year&#39s budget some of which came into force on April 6.


It explains practical ways to avoid or reduce potential IHT through potentially exempt transfers and lists 18 do&#39s and don&#39ts to mitigate against IHT.


The partnership suggests the present Government could close many of these mitigation avenues in next year&#39s budget. This follow its electoral pledge to clampdown on potential loopholes.


Copies of the guide are available free of charge, plus £2 post and packaging from the David Aaron Partnership.
