Seminar seeks to protect future wealth
Article date: 06/05/2016
There was plenty of food for thought at Higgs & Sons' latest private client seminar, as delegates were advised on how to protect their wealth for future generations. And one lucky guest came away with more than just good advice after winning afternoon tea for two in the unique surroundings of Halfpenny Green Vineyard in Staffordshire.
The focus for this year's Higgs & Sons annual private client seminar was how to plan for your family's future in light of recent changes to Inheritance Tax (IHT). Speakers from Higgs & Sons' renowned private client department looked at various aspect of wealth protection including passing on the family home, deeds and trusts, and how recent changes to EU succession laws will impact on those who have invested abroad.
"It is fair to say that the rules surrounding IHT have relaxed somewhat over recent years," comments Nick Moxon, Head of Higgs' private client department.
"Despite these recent relaxations however, many families still find themselves penalised by IHT. As a result, even those with relatively moderate wealth may benefit from a thorough review of their circumstances.
"It is within this context that we decided to host this seminar. We hope it provides people with sufficient information to make the right choices to protect their wealth for future generations."
More than 90 delegates attended the Planning for your Family's Future seminar which was held at the firm's Waterfront headquarters on 4th May. Partners Ian Bond, Lucy Obrey and Peter Gosling were key note speakers. Head of private client and Higgs' senior partner, Nick Moxon chaired the event.
The evening concluded with a raffle to win afternoon tea at the award winning Halfpenny Green, one of the largest vineyards in the UK. The winner was delighted with her prize.
