The saying that nothing is certain but death and taxes always comes to mind towards the end of the tax year. At this point, the self-employed should have submitted their self-assessmenttax returns already. Most people will have been paying Income Tax automatically all year through the PAYE scheme. As the start of the new tax year approaches in April 2019, it is a good time to think about how you can reduce your tax bill.
Call 0843 596 4104 to discuss Inheritance Tax reliefs and exemptions with HMRC.
Inheritance Tax is becoming a concern for more people in the UK. Only around 5% of people have to pay this tax when they inherit an estate. As property prices increase, however, it also increases the value of estates for many people. This can push them out of the nil rate tax band, which means that their beneficiaries will then have to pay 40% of what they inherit back to the government in tax. This is only something that you need to worry about if your total assets are worth more than £325,000. Here are a few ways to reduce Inheritance Tax bills if this affects you.
Call 0844 453 0158 for Council Tax advice or get in touch with your local council.

Even properties on the lowest Council Tax band can be expensive, and some people struggle to pay. Fortunately, it is possible to reduce your Council Tax bill in certain circumstances.
