Inheritance Tax Planning
Inheritance Tax Planning is about putting proactive planning in place to make sure your Estate is held and passed down to your beneficiaries in the most tax efficient way possible. Family wealth is often subject to Inheritance Tax as it passes down each generation, eroding that wealth for you and your loved ones over time.
Lasting Power of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is currently one of the most important documents you could ever create as it is the only way to ensure your health and assets can be managed how you would want them to be, should you lose capacity during your lifetime.
We have a comprehensive range of Will Writing Services available, from our basic Online Will Writing Service for single or mirror Wills to a fully bespoke individual Estate Planning Service that can include Protective Wills, Trusts, Guardianship, Lasting Power of Attorney (LPAs), Inheritance Tax Planning and Long Term Care Free Planning,
Long Term Care Free Planning
What happens if you need to go into care, but cannot afford to pay the skyscraper prices of a luxury care home? Under the current system, if you meet a certain threshold the Government will pay for a home of their choosing. However, the threshold is such that often, many people still struggle to pay the fees.
Pre-Paid Funeral Plans
A prepaid funeral plan is a way to pay in advance for the basic services involved in having a funeral. It gives you peace of mind, knowing the costs of your funeral and your personal wishes are guaranteed.
An essential part of protecting your assets for those you leave behind is making a Will. If you have dependants, you could set out what your wishes are for them in the event of your death, including naming those you wish to be their guardian.
Our purpose at Redwood Financial is help our Clients to grow, protect and enjoy their wealth through our extensive portfolio of wealth planning products and expertise, including Equity Release.
