On the 5th of December 2016 the British Government announced changes to Inheritance Tax rules for foreigner’s nationals that own UK property and assets.

The new rules will come into effect from the 6th of April 2017. Historically many foreigners used trusts or companies to avoid UK Inheritance tax. The new rules mean that such set ups will no longer avoid Inheritance Tax. This means that anyone who holds UK based property will be liable to pay inheritance tax no matter how they hold the property.

UK Inheritance Tax is the highest estate duty anywhere in the world. The government charges a 40% tax on the value of any assets held in the country in excess of £ 325,000. However, with proper planning there are a number of ways to reduce or even completely remove an Inheritance Tax liability on UK property.

Farringdon Asset Management will be holding a seminar on the 15th of February at 8pm at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The presentation will hear from two speakers:

Dave Denton – Old Mutual International
UK Inheritance Tax for non-UK nationals and ways to mitigate

Martin Young – Farringdon Asset Management
Sterling Investment portfolios to use as part of Inheritance Tax mitigation strategies
