Business to personal - one generation to the next - present to future

Create the best possible future

A major concern for successful individuals is often the issue of inheritance tax.  Shorts can help you to preserve your wealth for future generations with the implementation of tax efficient and effective strategies.  We would wish to establish a deep understanding of your current financial position and long-term aspirations.  From this, we could create a strategy to manage and protect your estate, whilst also providing sufficient capital upon which to live comfortably.

Our experienced personal tax team develop a detailed knowledge of their clients’ individual circumstances.

We ensure that personal tax returns are completed accurately and are submitted on a timely basis, provide assurance that all relevant claims have been made and that our clients receive a clear and understandable explanation of their tax position.

By understanding the legal, financial and tax aspects of wills, our team can prepare bespoke wills for our clients and then review them at appropriate intervals.

Many of our clients also find benefits in the appointment of our trust company, Short Trustees Limited, as an Executor and/or Trustee, particularly where we have a long-standing relationship with a client and their business.
