  • "an extremely helpful reference book on estate tax planning ... likely to be of great assistance to many private client practitioners who come across the odd tax problem ... the busy practitioner will therefore find helpful precedents ranging from an appropriately brief memorandum of appropriation to a full, 11-page, 15-clause will, accompanied by helpful 'Drafting hints'. Electronic copies of all the precedents are supplied on the accompanying CD-ROM, which is easy and quick to install ... precedents are intuitively arranged by chapter"
    STEP Journal

    "the precedents offer time-saving practical advice and guidance to the busy practitioner and professional adviser ... an essential work of reference ... Each precedent can be downloaded and adapted as appropriate to specific cases"
    Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

    "just as relevant and useful for tax advisers as it is for practitioners specialising in the administration of estates and the drafting of wills ... we would say that it is virtually imperative for practitioners charged with the tax-efficient drafting of wills, as well as other aspects of estate planning, to acquire this book ... a solidly reliable and readable work of reference that should be kept readily to hand by every professional involved in this technically challenging and fast changing area of law"

    Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

    "Any book about wills and estates should now be covering the reduced rate of inheritance tax (IHT) if 10 per cent of the net estate is left to charity ...authors Christopher Whitehouse and Professor Lesley King have devoted a whole chapter to the matter ... it is an assured and useful guide ... this book is a veritable mine of useful information and would be a significant addition to any private client library, though. It is accessible for trainees while maintaining a depth of knowledge that makes it invaluable to more senior practitioners. It is well paced and easy to navigate as well as being clear and concise, yet comprehensive"
