We’ve designed our inheritance tax planning scenarios and venture capital trust planning scenarios to help you develop appropriate strategies for your clients.
We’d like to remind you that our products are not suitable for everybody. The value of an investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise. Investors may not get back the full amount they invest. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and could change in the future. Tax reliefs depend on portfolio companies maintaining their qualifying status.
Also remember that the shares of smaller companies and VCT shares could fall or rise in value more than other shares listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. They may also be harder to sell. For a fuller discussion of risks, see our guide to risks.
