This edition is up-to-date to include both 1992 Finance Acts. Legal chapters have been fully revised to include changes in Law and probate practices and there is greater emphasis on practical tips on both Wills and the Administration of Estates.;Capital taxation can be the most damaging of taxes as it affects all major assets. It is, however, one of the most complicated in its application and confusing in its widespread coverage. This book explains what capital taxes are, where and what they apply and how to plan for their payment as well as making worthwhile savings. For professional advisers and individual taxpayers, this uses straightforward language and worked examples to provide clear advice on how estates' profits can be maximised and capital taxes minimised by careful foresight, management and administration.;It provides a clear explanation of capital taxation and sets out practical ways in which worthwhile savings can be made. It includes exclusive Tax Planning Signposts which direct readers to the many tax planning suggestions in each chapter and considers the most important legal aspects of estate and trust planning and administration and shows how they can contribute to reducing the tax burden. It also deals with stamp duty and drafting wills and indicates how to take full advantage of the benefits, exemptions and reliefs currently available.
