Our Services

Working & Saving

This section of our site contains guides and calculators on income tax and traditional savings products, such as bank, building society and deposit accounts as well as ISAs.

Health & Family Life

Life Insurance

The aim of life assurance cover is to provide money for people who financially depend on you. For example, if you still have a mortgage, if you have children or if you have business debts.

If there is no one who will be financially distressed by your death, life assurance is probably not essential, though there are other reasons why it would be useful.

Health Insurance

These days, for people of working age, good health is the normal state, and few people consider what would happen if , due to ill health, their career was interrupted or even stopped. There are a number of insurance covers that can help you should you fall ill, including:

  • Critical Illness Cover
  • Long term care
  • Income Protection
  • Medical Insurance

Pensions and retirement

Pensions are financial tools whose purpose is the provision of money in old age.

Because it is considered good public policy to try and get people to save for their own retirement (rather than rely on the State) pension funds are given special tax treatment.

Over the years, however, governments have changed the system so much that it is all highly complex (much more complex than it should be).

Following the link below, you will be taken to sections that give a basic guide, but because of the complexity, professional advice is essential.

Investing & Personal Wealth

Most people want investments which are safe, in the sense that they cannot fall, and which offer high returns. This ideal combination is not available. Beware anyone who claims otherwise.

Sensible investment planning revolves around understanding what your investment aims are.

Speaking to an expert will help you choose the right investments in order to help you meet your objectives.

Passing on wealth

Following the link below will provide you with information on why you should write a will and keep it up to date, and an explanation of current inheritance tax rules. Our calculator will help you estimate your estate’s liability to inheritance tax. Good tax planning can reduce this liability.
