Lifestyle, retirement planning and investments
It doesn’t matter what stage of life you’re at – it’s so vital to get expert advice on your pension plans and investments. Whether you need to set up or review existing retirement strategies for you and your team, or implement lifestyle planning for you and your family, turn to our accounting professionals and amplify your opportunities.
Tax, trust and estate planning
You spend your life working hard to build your wealth. But without careful planning, your family could lose a large proportion of your estate to a hefty Inheritance Tax bill. Bright Ideas Financial Planning considers all tax implications, creating a structured plan to reduce Inheritance Tax whilst maintaining flexibility and control of your assets.
We can advise on:
- Inheritance Tax planning
- Gift and loan arrangements
- Trusts, including spousal bypass, family protection and discounted gift trusts
- Gift rules, including potentially exempt transfers and chargeable lifetime transfers
Protect what’s most important in your life: your family and yourself. We understand that sometimes this can be a tough conversation to have, but we also know how vital personal protection is. We are the specialists in this area, and can create bespoke plans that act as a safety net in a range of challenging circumstances and unexpected eventualities.
The most valuable asset to any business is undoubtedly its people – without them, a company risks its survival. Our fresh approach to business protection will help safeguard you, your team, and the organisation you’ve worked hard to build, should the worst happen. In partnership with our providers, we’ll recommend the most effective product mix.
