Graphic explains planning is critical to minimising financial burdens on families
LONDON, Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fisher Investments UK recently released Inheritance Tax: The UK's "Most Hated" Tax?, a thought-provoking new infographic that answers key questions about inheritance tax (IHT).
Often described in the media as the UK's "most hated tax," the controversial and often poorly understood IHT can have potentially massive impacts on family finances. Understanding the key IHT considerations and having a plan can help mitigate the financial and emotional toll from the death of a loved one.
Carrianne Coffey, Board Chairperson of Fisher Investments Europe, said, "IHT can present tremendous burdens on families already suffering from the loss of a family member. Knowledge and preparation are critical to all aspects of long-term financial planning, including inheritance. Fisher Investments UK is proud to present this infographic to help families understand IHT."
Fisher Investments UK's infographic clarifies how IHT is calculated, who is responsible for paying and when the tax is due. It also looks at why a will is crucial to the IHT process and outlines other steps families can take to navigate the process and avoid common mistakes.
