Format: Unknown Binding
I was disappointed when this book arrived and found that it was actually a bound booklet rather than a proper book – therefore my advice would be to get the e-Book (which is in PDF format, £5 cheaper and immediately downloadable) and print it out yourself.
In terms of content I have found it invaluable. In fact it contains far more information than any of the IHT range of booklets that you can download from the Inland Revenue Inheritance Tax pages - which are free of course but they don't also tell you how to try and avoid / minimise the tax as well. Where I had found the Inland Revenue guidance on IHT calculations confusing, or at least a little unclear (on the use of certain types of Trusts for example), I have been able to refer to this book for the answer. I had telephoned the Inland Revenue advice line before getting the book and had been told contradicting information by two different telephone advisors – when I referred to the book it already had a definitive answer. After reading the book I also saw a solicitor and actually picked her up on a couple of minor errors she made in her advice as a result of the excellent understanding of the methods and issues which I had gained from this guide.
The book acts as a signpost telling you the ways you can avoid / minimise the tax but it isn’t then a step-by-step instruction book of how to undertake the most complicated methods yourself. I believe that as a result of this the book is relatively easy to read. I think if you need to undertake the most complicated methods of avoiding the IHT then a solution where you could follow a set of instructions wouldn’t work for you anyway and a professional needs to be brought in to ensure the legal side is watertight.

I have been looking for a clearly written book on Inheritance tax planning for some time and have bought several. I would say this one is the best because the author has an extremely engaging and user friendly style. He also uses lots of clear examples throughout. What I like about this book is that it discusses both simple and more sophisticated inheritance tax planning methods, remaining easy to follow from beginning to end.

Format: Paperback
A clear, simple explanation of a very complex subject. Worked examples add to the clarity. Gives the status of the law in early 2005. In some areas, e.g. trusts, you may feel the need to get further explanation but this book gives sufficient detail for most people.
Gave me enough knowledge to be able to talk, and argue, with the IFA and put forward a proposal that suited my family.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Quite a lengthy book and it seems to cover most aspects of hot to avoid the dreaded inheritance tax, but where the book fails is it glosses over the most important parts of the 'how to' bit. This is the most important part of the book I would suspect for the vast majority of potential readers and it doesn't cut it. Amusingly written, with author's tongue in cheek, and containing some useful examples but as I say falls well short of the 'how to' bit.
There are better books available at at much less cost even on Amazon. Try one instead of this one.

Im glad I bought this book. It clearly explains the current inheritance tax legislations and scenarios that one may face when claiming your tax back. I found the examples and various tips very helpful and am much more confident now about my family's future.
