Estate Planning

We offer professional advice regarding estate planning and the use of a Section 72 Life Assurance policy to pay inheritance tax.

We compare the market for the best product and then match it with the best competitor price.

One product that we make available, includes a life changes option, which allows a refund of up to 70% of your premiums after 15 years have passed, which may come into play in the case you have sold some assets, or your circumstances have changed.

You can use your Whole of Life Assurance policy to help offset this inheritance tax liability. You do this by setting it up by what is known as, a Section 72 Life Assurance policy.

This is a special insurance policy approved by the Revenue Commissioners under Section 72 of the Capital Acquisitions Tax Consolidation Act 2003.

It is taken out specifically to help pay inheritance tax. The money paid out, when it is used to pay inheritance tax, is then not liable to tax.

With enough cover in place you can protect your loved ones from an inheritance tax bill. Otherwise, they may have to sell the family home or take out a loan to pay the tax. So setting up a Whole of Life policy this way, can ensure that your assets can be passed on and enjoyed by your loved ones rather than being used to pay a tax bill.
