Stronachs Logo

At Stronachs we understand that ensuring your estate is protected and passed to the individuals of your choice is an issue of vital importance.

Our team of experienced tax and succession planning experts are committed to providing you with the highest quality legal advice to make sure that your needs and wishes for the future are fulfilled.

Having a professionally prepared, up-to-date will in place is an essential step in this process. By applying our knowledge to your individual circumstances and wishes, we will ensure that your will is specifically tailored to you.

With our personal and forward-thinking approach, we will review your current circumstances and plans for the future to identify potential Inheritance and capital gains tax liabilities that may arise.  We can discuss the potential options available to protect your estate from these and work with you to achieve your aims in the most tax-efficient manner.

Our team has many years of experience in providing tax and succession planning advice to clients with a broad range of interests - from successive generations of families to farmers and business owners.

Our experience enables us to provide specialised advice on asset protection, particularly the passing down of farms, businesses, landed estates and historical family heirlooms.

We understand the concerns you may have, and the complex issues you may face when planning for the future of your estate, and will ensure that your wishes are respected.
