It was Louis XIV finance minister, Colbert, who famously said that the art of taxation was to extract the most number of feathers with the least amount of hissing. On that basis Inheritance Tax lamentably fails. It causes huge controversy whilst collecting only 0.7 per cent of all UK tax revenues.
On Monday 9th December MBL are holding a conference, which I am chairing, on Inheritance Tax. This conference will bring together some of the most experienced practitioners in Inheritance Tax in the UK. This conference is being held in London and should provide a very worthwhile review of the IHT system as well as practical solutions to IHT problems. It will also include some invaluable tax planning tips. Please contact MBL for details of how to book.
