Tax Planning & Inheritance Solicitors


Looking after your personal wealth is key to safeguarding your financial future. Partnering with the right legal professional will give you the peace of mind of knowing your affairs are in the best hands, with all procedures carried out correctly and with your interests always the top priority.

Our team of experts at Lanyon Bowdler have many years experience in helping and advising people on looking after what they have accumulated and how they and their families can reap the full benefit from it.

What is tax planning?

Put simply, tax planning means arranging your legal affairs in the most efficient way to minimise your tax obligations. It is a very specialised area and can be a daunting prospect, which is why it’s vital to have a team of experienced professionals on your side.

It all starts with an informal face-to-face meeting where we get to know each other and find out your goals and objectives. We can then set about putting a plan in place which is perfect for you and your family.

Our hope is that we will partner with you on a long-term basis, meaning we will always be aware of your needs and ambitions while fostering a relationship of trust over what we hope will be many years.

How can Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors help?

Our team of specialists can help by advising on tax issues relating to:

  • Setting up a lifetime trust
  • Making lifetime gifts
  • Employing the most tax-efficient way of structuring your finances
  • Capital gains tax liabilities
  • Inheritance tax
  • Drafting a will
  • Self assessment
  • Disposing of valuable assets like shares or property

Everything will be unique to you because we know that everyone’s circumstances are different.

The team at Lanyon Bowdler is highly experienced in dealing with extremely complicated personal and financial affairs.

We can help you avoid the common pitfalls that can so easily catch people out, ensure any tax liabilities are paid without interest or penalty and, as well as planning for the future, can advise on anything you may wish to do with your money now.
