Capital Gains Tax and Separation
Our role in this process is to help you understand how to place an appropriate value on an asset or income source. This makes it easier to compare and contrast that value with other matrimonial assets.
The settlement of a divorce can be truly life changing; we can assist you when facing negotiations, and support you through the whole process.
Divorce – We understand going through a divorce can be very stressful for you. We want to take some of the stress away by ensuring your future will be secured financially for you and your family. We will analyse financial proposals to test whether the funds will be sufficient for your needs going forward.
Family – When going through a divorce you will also want to secure family wealth for their future. We work with our tax team to offer a truly joined-up service so that you and your family wealth is protected.
Pensions – As well as protecting your wealth for today, what about tomorrow and beyond? We look at the bigger picture when two people have decided to divorce; your pension fund should also be considered when separation of funds and estates are agreed. We are often asked, “Is it better to try to achieve a fair split or consider offsetting against non-pension assets?” We can offer the best financial solution for you.
The way in which benefits that have accumulated within pensions are presented, can lead you to feel confused. This is typically due to the different regimes under which they operate.
Financial modelling typically forms the cornerstone of our process. It helps us to demonstrate how different income and capital resources can be used in conjunction to achieve the most appropriate solution for all, so that informed decisions can be made with confidence.
There is a huge amount of crossover with tax and financial planning advice and we believe that clients benefit from the comprehensive, professional advice where both our tax and financial planning teams are working together.
