Capital Gains Tax
Clients may be subject to capital gains tax when they dispose of certain assets. It's therefore vital for advisers to fully understand when capital gains may arise and how assets will be taxed. The use of reliefs, exemptions and allowances can be a valuable planning tool which may allow clients to defer gains or minimise the tax they will pay on them.
IHT on lifetime transfers
Inheritance tax can have an impact upon what can be given away during someone’s lifetime. But with the right planning the effect of IHT can be minimised. It is therefore essential for advisers when considering wealth transfer to understand the taxation of lifetime gifts.
A client's income tax status will affect most financial decisions throughout their lifetime - from choosing the most appropriate savings vehicle, funding for their pension or how to take their income in retirement. Understanding how income is taxed is an essential component of any financial planning.
