Your wealth can have a huge impact beyond your lifetime. It can be an emotional issue thinking about who should benefit from your estate, and how. But, as with most good plans, it pays to start early and ensure your wealth makes as positive an impact as possible.
Inheritance is also about more than just tax planning. To ensure that your estate is handled according to your wishes, it’s best to have a solid plan in place, along with all the documents you’ll need to make it legal and correct, such as wills, guardianship, trusts, and so on. The rules around inheritance are complex and change regularly. Currently, spouses are allowed to pass assets during their lifetime. If you spend a significant portion of your time outside of the UK, it can affect the laws to which your estate will be subject.
Our expert team can advise and assist you to ensure that your hard-earned wealth is protected, both for you and your family. As licensed Long Term Care specialists, we’re in this with you for the long haul.

Frequently asked questions
In our opinion, these are all different things. However, a lot of the time the industry and press use some of these terms interchangeably, which can lead to confusion. At Temple Row we believe that Inheritance planning is trying to minimise the tax that will be paid between you and the next two generations, Legacy Planning is planning beyond the generation that is currently alive (your children and grandchildren) and Tax planning can be all of the above but more focused on minimising your current tax liabilities.
Assuming that you have made the proper declaration of wishes, your heirs will be able to get the benefits from the pension. How they will be able to access it is dependent on their ages and relationship to you.
The simple answer is that, without creating a complex legal framework, you will be subject to the taxes of the country where you held the asset first and your domiciled country next. Our clients are typically UK domiciled and resident. They are subject to the laws of England and Wales.
