Hear from those who’ve benefitted from an Inheritance Tax Loan

“Mum was financially savvy and had always had a lot of her money in share portfolios so when she died there wasn’t a lot of cash. Because the share portfolio companies won’t release funds to pay IHT I was stuck with a bill and no means to pay until the inheritance was released.

“Tower Street Finance acted really quickly for me and paid HMRC direct with an Inheritance Tax Loan which was repaid from the estate once the grant was issued. It was such a relief.”
