Katie has advised upon the following:

  • The preparation of simple Wills and more complex Wills containing trusts
  • Wealth management including lifetime and inheritance tax planning for high net worth individuals, business owners and individuals with landed estates
  • The creation of suitable trust structures, including preparing a trust for vintage cars which were then to be leased from the trustees to the original donor
  • A deceased estate where inheritance tax of over £600,000 fell due, advising on how to pay this and preparing a Deed of Variation to gift 10% of the estate to charity to benefit from the 36% rate of inheritance tax, rather than 40%
  • Trust administration, including the drafting of Deeds of Appointment and Retirement of Trustees, Loan Agreements and Deeds of Indemnity and advising on taxation issues.
