When a legacy is left to Langdon the gift is totally tax-free, regardless of the amount. What’s more, the value of the gift is deducted from the total gross value of the estate, which may reduce the amount on which tax is payable. There are many different types of legacy and you should, of course, take legal advice when preparing your will.
Today we are a lifeline for vulnerable people with learning disabilities. We need to prepare for tomorrow.
