Inheritance & Gift Tax Capital Acquisitions Tax Services
Warren & Partners provide bespoke advice regarding capital acquisitions tax in Ireland, which includes inheritance tax, gift tax and discretionary trust tax. We help our clients (including family offices) to create tax-efficient strategies for passing wealth to the next generation.
Given the Inheritance & Gift tax rate is currently 33%, we focus on identifying applicable exemptions or tax reliefs that you may be eligible for. We can assist you in identifying and addressing any foreign tax that your estate may be exposed to.
We will guide you in all matters relevant to Irish capital acquisitions tax (CAT) including:
We make you aware of the financial opportunities, taxation implications and capital tax cost of passing your assets onto the next generation. We consider the opportunities that may arise from giving gifts to secure reliefs, and from transferring assets before any likely increase in value occurs. In this regard, we frequently use Family Partnerships, Limited Partnerships and tax efficient Wills structures to assist clients.
If your business is eligible for business asset relief, we can assist you in reducing the taxable value of a gifted or inherited, qualified business asset by up to 90%.
If you are over the age of 55 and are planning to transfer some or all of your business assets to a third party, we can assist you in availing of capital gains tax (CGT) retirement relief for eligible assets, to significantly reduce your CGT liability.
We assist clients in the creation of legacy Irish trust structures and can assist with the restructuring or termination of existing trust structures. Through our international network of peer firms we can also direct you to foreign tax advisors who will provide you with assistance regarding offshore structures.
