Tax Efficient Services

The effect of taxation can be one of the biggest threats to wealth. One of the strengths of our client service is our ability to create and manage portfolios that use all the benefits of statutory tax reliefs to mitigate capital gains, inheritance and income taxes. We are able to work closely with professional tax advisers to provide the most advantageous solution for our clients. Our services include:


Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS)

This portfolio service takes advantage of growth opportunities offered by investing in smaller qualifying companies listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) and using the capital gains, income and inheritance tax reliefs granted by the Government.


Inheritance Tax Relief Portfolio (IHT)

Our IHT portfolio harnesses the growth available in smaller qualifying companies listed on the AIM whilst utilising inheritance tax reliefs granted by the Government.


AIM


AIM is a regulated market offering small businesses the opportunity to raise new funds for expansion and to create a market in their shares. It is a first stop for dynamic young companies with potential for substantial growth. The market was launched in 1995. It consists of over 1600 Companies with a market capitalisation of over £90 billion*.


Family Investment Fund (FIF)
