Inheritance Tax – is it actually unfair?

The papers seem to have been going on about IHT for the last couple of weeks. They were saying it was unfair, punishing prudent saving and good investment, hitting people when they’re down (literally), how it’s a recent tax, etc. etc..

First post (click to comment)

I discuss pensions, investing and other personal finance with friends and colleagues. “I might put this on a website,” I said to one. “You should!” she said. So here it is.

This blog is going to explain what I plan for the site, my thoughts on new legislation on personal tax and finance, and readers can comment on the site and can suggest future pages.

There are a number of more factual pages. On the whole, the pages look at personal finance from my angle and I hope that there’s value in that for you.
