Are you likely to be affected?



Good US/UK planning advice is vital if:

  • you’re buying a holiday home or other investment property abroad
  • you’re moving to another country
  • you’re setting up a trust for your children’s future
  • you’re setting up a foundation or a way to give to a charity you support in a more regular and long term way
  • you’re creating a lifetime gift

Typical scenarios where we can help

- the UK couple with US property
- the Brit married to an American who is short term resident in the UK
- the Brit married to an American who is long term resident in the UK
- the US couple who are both long term residents in the UK
- the US couple who are short term residents in the UK but looking to return to the US in the long term.

Your fixed price estate plan

£7000 plus VAT


Personal estate planning is essential. There will always be particular circumstances and objectives for us to weave into your plan. This means we do need to spend time talking to you and understanding your family’s situation. However we have seen so many scenarios that we have been able to develop a fixed price to provide the full suite of estate planning documents that you’ll need. We need to stay flexible because the laws affecting US gifts and the tax thresholds change all the time, but it is perfectly possible to provide you with effective documents that work in both the UK and the US for one fee.

Your fixed price includes:

  • a consultation to understand your family’s particular objectives. We’ll ask where you live now and where you want to live, what investments you have and where you want to keep investing, how you might like to provide for any children you have and about your work, business and charitable interests.
  • bespoke estate planning documentation that will satisfy US and UK tax legislation.
