One of the things we’ll be talking to you about is how Business Property Relief could be a useful estate planning tool for some clients. When it comes to BPR-qualifying investments, you should remember that the value of an investment, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise. Tax treatment depends on individuals’ circumstances and could change the in the future. Tax relief depends on portfolio companies maintaining their qualifying status.
