Deeds of Variation
For two years after a person dies, you can vary the terms of their Will or Intestacy by making a Deed of Variation. For example, you may have inherited a sum of money but are comfortably off and would prefer to give it to your children. This can be achieved by way of a Deed of Variation. Varying the estate in this way means that you avoid the inheritance tax rules on lifetime gifts.
The Deed must contain certain statements about tax that we will advise on. Our specialist Solicitors are also able to advise on all other aspects of Inheritance Tax Planning. For more information please see our Inheritance Tax page.
