The WAY Group plans IHT road shows

Inheritance Tax planning specialists The WAY Group is to embark on a major drive to raise the profile of its suite of IHT products within the independent financial advisor sector.

The tour will take place in many towns and cities throughout England and Wales below, winding up in Belfast on November 9.

The WAY Group currently offers a portfolio of nine different schemes, including the recently devised WAY Estate Transfer Plan.

Donors can overstate their need for maturities and defer what they don’t need as they go along.

Our plan is a sophisticated and extremely effective tool for IHT planning something we intend to enlighten IFAs about, and of course detail the commission structures involved.
