A UK Outlook: Planning for your Inheritance

Join us for our second instalment in our UK Outlook series on how best to plan for your inheritance. 
 
It is often overlooked that the UK operates a ‘US style’ tax system for Inheritance Tax. What this means is that, in most cases, the worldwide estate of a British expatriate is subject to Inheritance Tax in the UK, even though you may have been living in Singapore for many years. So it is important to get a handle on what this means and how best to plan for it.
 
Martin Rimmer, Head of Tax at Select Investors, will talk through the UK’s inheritance regulations, particularly on personal assets, to help you better navigate them in order to reduce your tax exposure. He will be joined by Choon Leng Tan, Director of JurisAsia LLC, who will share on the need for Singapore Wills and Powers of Attorney for British nationals in Singapore, as well as the rules of intestacy.
