What We Do:
Solicitors For High Net Worth Individuals
Payne Hicks Beach has been serving the tax, trust and succession advice needs of UK individuals since 1770. During that time the laws, and names of the taxes, have changed repeatedly but the challenge remains the same; how to protect, enhance and pass down wealth to the next generation.
Your Will is probably the most important document that you will ever make in your life. Your Will is the cornerstone of a good succession plan to ensure that after your certain death your chosen beneficiaries, be they family, friends or charities, flourish. We can guide you through the tax and succession complexities so you can face your future death with at least one less concern.
Advances in medical science have resulted in ever increasing life expectancies. Whilst this is a huge benefit, it has come with a rise in rates of dementia. The loss of mental capacity, for example from Alzheimer’s or an accident, can be devastating to you and your family. We can ensure that you put in place a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) so that if the worst does happen your affairs can be looked after by your chosen attorneys.
We are experts in lifetime tax planning. Whether you are considering selling your business, developing land or restructuring your investments we can guide you through the complexities of the UK tax system to help you achieve your goals. We also specialise in setting up Trusts to efficiently hold assets for the benefit of future generations. Trusts are still an important tool to protect your chosen beneficiaries, especially from themselves if they are too young or not sufficiently financially mature to hold assets personally.
