The Whole-life Policy Examples...


Mr Carter, a widower of 63, has built up a business he would like to pass on to his son.

His liability to CTT on death would be £300,000, and so he takes out a non-profit whole-life policy with a £300,000 sum assured.

The policy is written under trust for the benefit of his son. If this were not done, the policy proceeds would be added to his estate and also attract tax, but in this way the proceeds will be exempt.

The annual premium is about £2700 gross or £2577.5 after tax relief.

Where husband and wife are both living and do not wish the assets to pass to their children until both are dead, a joint life and last survivor policy is often used.

So they take out a joint non-profit whole-life policy with the sum assured of £220,000 payable on the second death, again written under trust for the benefit of the children to avoid any tax liability on the proceeds......... see: click here for Partnerships
