Festive Funny

In the Mail on Sunday a couple of weeks ago they ran an advertorial in the financial section which amused me. It's hard to believe typos appear - one assumes it was a typo - in such a prestigious periodical.

The advertorial was regarding a special tie up between the paper and a large building society's financial services offshoot [wonder what that cost!] The subject, typical at this time of year was inheritance tax; I agree with you this is one of the most evil of taxes but it is also one of the easiest to mitigate with a little planning - though not using the array of complex, charge laden products on offer from our friends in the FS industry.

Anyway, back to the advertorial; just after all the pointless info regarding how many decades this lot have been advising the public, and that advice can be delivered face to face or by video appointment - the following:

"During a review, your adviser will help you establish whether inheritance tax is something you need and want to plan for."

This is clearly a sign that the tax authorities are having a major influence in financial services or of course, it might just be a typo!

Normal service resumed later.
