I have a standard will drawn by a Solicitor specialising in

Customer Question

I have a standard will drawn by a Solicitor specialising in such matters but have no provisions for minimising IT. I am at present unmarried enjoying my freedom!
When I discuss this with the Solicitor he says my best method is to give my money away!
I attended a seminar in London and listened while several explained IT loop holes.
I cam back excited and spoke to my accountant who advised me to ignore such schemes as they were being blocked by the Government.
Then I read of PLC's escaping high taxation.
I will pay this year 45% tax and my IT will be several million.
I have a good investment income and a one third share in a property investment company.
