This new title takes a fresh approach to the subject under the new pre-owned assets regime. It is structured in such a way as to equip the reader with the detailed information required to advise their clients on all inheritance tax planning issues, including the most complex problems. Written by leading experts in the field, the book adopts a clear and practical style and also benefits from an extensive collection of precedents. Each precedent is accompanied by detailed drafting guidance notes and warnings on common drafting errors.

In recognising the importance of the family home in modern inheritance tax planning, the treatment of it is a central theme running throughout the book. As well as providing a comprehensive coverage of the subject, the difficulties caused in practice by specific areas are all addressed in a clear and practical way. These include insurance-based products, deeds of variation and the inter-relationship between inheritance tax and other taxes. The guide includes worked examples and case studies throughout and gives tips on how to avoid pitfalls when undertaking inheritance tax planning.
