Feature: Investment Property Trust Fund

Property has been an attractive investment for many for quite some time. It is something we understand, it is tangible, solid, something we can see and feel. Therefore there are many people with buy-to-let properties that they have chosen to purchase, or have been keeping in the family perhaps having inherited from past generations.

However, as time passes it becomes difficult to plan with property. Over time, a large capital gains tax liability can be built up, meaning that it is difficult to sell or gift the property, and ultimately on death there is a 40% inheritance tax liability. This can be quite a conundrum for many couples who would like to pass their estates on to their children, however seem destined to realise a large tax liability one way or another.

Trusts can be a useful tool for such a scenario. Assets such as property can be settled into trust, enabling your children to benefit from them without incurring an immediate Capital Gains Tax liability, or an Inheritance Tax liability. Your children can benefit from their inheritance and continue to build their wealth. For more information, get in touch today for a free, confidential review.
