"Realistic, comprehensive and truthful advice."

My wife and I have used Eames Laurie for a few years now. The advice given by them has always been realistic, comprehensive and truthful. The products they recommended for us are working well. They really take the time to understand your needs and explain everything in an easy and understanding way. I would recommend using Eames Laurie Financial Services all for financial matters.

"Clear advice given in a timely manner"

I have used Eames Laurie for a number of years for a range of financial matters, most recently to financially plan for moving home and to source a mortgage.

As always, the service was client-focused with clear advice given in a timely manner. Liza worked with us throughout the process from setting a budget to sourcing a mortgage, a conveyancing company and suitable life and home insurance. This relieved a lot of the stress commonly associated with a home move. I highly recommend the service for all personal financial planning needs.

"My investments are looked after by caring and expert people"

Eames Laurie has looked after my financial matters for many years. I am more than happy with the advice and help I continue to receive.

The advice I receive is explained fully and I am able to contact Chris Fox whenever I have a problem. I feel very relaxed and contented to know that my investments are looked after by caring and expert people. I am extremely happy with the service I receive and have no hesitation in recommending Eames Laurie for all financial matters.

"Everything was explained very professionally."

A couple of years ago I was introduced to Eames Laurie whilst looking to reinvest my Stocks and Share ISAs. Their advisers were extremely helpful in directing me toward their ISA managed fund. Throughout the process everything was explained very professionally and at no time did I feel pressured in any way.

I can now monitor and manage my portfolio via their secure website. Would I recommend Eames Laurie ……. definitely without question.

"Great communication, really quick response time and a pleasure to deal with"

A huge thank you to the team at Eames Laurie for all their hard work sourcing me a great deal on my mortgage so quickly. My circumstances meant that it was a slightly rockier road than their regular customers, even still, they were there every step of the way with some great advice on how to navigate smoothly through these issues.

Great communication, really quick response time and a pleasure to deal with, above & beyond, 5 stars from me.

Estate planning usually involves giving away or spending money

You may want your money to be used in a specific way or you may just want to make sure that it stays within your family when you're no longer here. 

Whatever assets or wealth you have accumulated in life, you will have your own personal plans for how your legacy is shared with those you care about. Keeping your plans up to date with the current inheritance tax regulation is important and the sooner you have a plan in place, the more options you’ll have for passing on your wealth efficiently. 

Working with our advisers we can help you to understand what’s involved in estate planning – as well as the implications of any decisions you make, so that your wealth is passed on in line with your wishes.

Inheritance Tax

Inheritance Tax (IHT) is one of the most complex areas of financial planning and the rules change frequently. IHT is a tax on the assets that belong to you when you die. Assets include the total of everything owned by you and a share of anything owned jointly. Here are the most common assets:

  • Personal property
  • Real estate and land
  • Shares
  • Cash
  • Future inheritance

Some assets are exempt from IHT or are at least eligible for a reduced rate. They include certain types of businesses, agricultural and woodland property, and heritage assets (a building, land, or objects of national scientific, historic or artistic importance).

We will advise on investment products that help manage your inheritance tax position effectively whilst you retain the use and control of the capital.

Passing on your wealth

HM Revenue and Customs practice and the law relating to taxation are complex and subject to individual circumstances and changes which cannot be foreseen.

Will writing is not part of the 2plan wealth management Ltd offering and is offered in our own right. 2plan wealth management Ltd accept no responsibility for this aspect of our business.

Please note that the Financial Conduct Authority do not regulate will writing, tax planning and trusts.


For the tax year 2023/2024, the nil-rate band is £325,000 (£650,000 jointly).
