1. Following on from Pondering No 7, did you know that the potential to reduce Inheritance tax could be immense?

For example: Using Family Protection Trusts (FPTs) and Solicitor Controlled Potentially Exempt Transfer Trusts (SPETs), the current Inheritance Tax on total assets (eg -house £600K and other £500K) of £180,000 could potentially be reduced to ZERO over a 7 year period.  It's worth enquiring!

2.  Did you know that if you have a pension pot of £100,000, the amount you'll receive in pension currently is around £6,000 a year.  15 years ago that same ‘pot' would have got you around £13,000 a year!

We expected things to get better over time, but they have got a whole lot worse, and are set to continue in that direction.

Making decisions about alternative opportunities to grow your pension seems like a very good idea, don't you think?
