Effective estate planning and flexible access

The Wealth Preservation Accounts (WPAs) help reduce your clients’ inheritance tax liability, whilst allowing them to receive periodic payments from the trust. The payments to your client are flexible and the trustees can pass money to the beneficiaries at any time. This provides an unrivalled combination of tax-efficiency and flexibility.

We all know that clients have different requirements so it is important to provide a choice of jurisdictions which offer the features that clients want and need.

The benefits of WPAs

The Wealth Preservation Accounts offer:

  • Inheritance tax mitigation
  • Optional yearly payments
  • Tax-efficient investment growth
  • The ability for the trustees to make discretionary payments to beneficiaries
  • Access to full open architecture investment

Who is it suitable for?

The WPAs will appeal to UK residents who have a potential inheritance tax liability and are willing to make a lump sum gift into a trust, whilst retaining access to payments from the trust and giving the trustees the ability to make payments to the chosen beneficiaries.


The Wealth Preservation Accounts are arrangements designed to save inheritance tax.

They allow a client to gift money into trust to reduce their potential inheritance tax liability but also allows them to receive payments on a predetermined date (if required) to supplement their income.

On inception, the policies in an account are immediately assigned into a bare trust and then into a discretionary settlement.

The value of investments can fall as well as rise.
