Using Whole of Life Insurance for inheritance tax  planning whole life insurance free quotations

Whole of life insurance can be a very effective tool for dealing with Inheritance tax.

Inheritance tax is the tax on someone's estate over the value of 275,000. If you have an estate over this amount then your beneficiaries could have to find an amount of tax equivalent to 40% of the excess.

This means that an estate of say 350,000 would have a potential tax liability of 30,000 due to the inland revenue on death.

If everything has been done that can be done to mitigate the tax and there is still some tax left over then the only way that you can ensure the beneficiaries will have the money to meet the bill is to write a whole of life insurance policy in trust to them for the amount of the tax.

In the event of death this plan will be paid out to the beneficiaries under the trust and they will be able to use the money to pay the tax man.

If you are not sure whether you have an inheritance tax liability why don't you use our free Inheritance tax calculator to work it out. This calculator is only as accurate as the figures that are put into it and it is only a guide to the amount of tax that may or may not be due. If it does indicate that you have an inheritance tax liability you should speak to us to ensure that everything that can be done to mitigate it is being done before you take any remedial action.
