Gifting can reduce your liability for inheritance tax.

Transfering assets out of your estate in order to minimise IHT can risk financial stability. Ensuring that you are financially secure, particularly in retirement, should be a priority.

Once you have made the gift you no longer have control over the asset in question, so think carefully about the implications before making a decision.
