Brief Overview

With IHT receipts approaching the £5bn mark in 2016/17, estate planning tools have become a hot topic. Business Relief (BR) is one of the lesser known estate planning solutions, but its use is on the rise. In 2014, over £2bn was claimed in BR exemptions via BR.
Our latest BR report looks at the environment that surrounds this tax efficient vehicle, including how it is providing much needed patient capital to UK businesses, the significance of BR against the backdrop of an ageing population, the significance of the AIM market in BR, as well as the latest compliance considerations that advisers should be aware of.
