Recorded on Tuesday 12 March. Henny Dovland, Senior Business Development Manager at TIME Investments looks into how Business Relief (BR) solutions offer investors the opportunity to mitigate their IHT liabilities by investing in the shares of smaller unquoted businesses, which qualify for tax relief.

Inheritance Tax (IHT) is hefty – 40% of the total qualifying estate and the number of people liable to pay this tax has risen markedly in the last decade alongside property prices. IHT revenues totalled £5.2 billion in the last tax year – an increase of 8% on the previous year[1].  Unsurprisingly, the number of investors seeking tax-efficient investment solutions has increased in response, as more people struggle to find effective ways to pass on their assets to their loved ones after death.

Terms and Conditions

TIME does not accept direct investment. If you wish to invest in one of our solutions you will need to take advice from an authorised financial adviser. Nothing within this website is intended to constitute investment, tax or legal advice. Our solutions place your capital at risk and you may not get back the full amount invested. Tax treatment may be subject to change and depends on the individual circumstances of each investor. The availability of tax reliefs also depends on the investee companies maintaining their qualifying status. Neither past performance or forecasts are reliable indicators of future results and should not be relied upon. Unquoted or smaller company shares are likely to have higher volatility and liquidity risks than other types of shares quoted on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange.
