Welcome to our September / October 2022 edition. Rising living costs have been so significant in recent months that most UK households will have noticed a squeeze on their monthly budgets. Not only does this have a direct impact on people’s lifestyles, even though they are making every effort to cut back, but it has a knockon effect on their lifelong goals such as owning a home or retiring comfortable. We focus on this topic in this edition.

    • On page 3 we look at why making plans for Inheritance Tax is so important.

    • On page 5 new research highlights millions of people across the UK fear that the long-term impact of today’s rising living costs could see their life goals delayed or even missed altogether.

    • On page 6 we explain how by making the wrong decision it could cost you heavily in the
      form of an unwanted tax bill, eventually running out of money in retirement and even a tax credits and benefits overpayment. So before you do anything, take a look at what you should consider.

    • On page 12 we look at the impact of the freezing of the higher rate tax band.
