A lifetime gift is any gift that you make, without strings, during your lifetime.
In the UK, there are strict rules around gifting to stop people from avoiding IHT by giving away their possessions as gifts before they die.
The digitalisation of our everyday lives
All of us have at least part of our lives online and in digital assets such as emails, social media profiles, cryptocurrency and online bank accounts, to name just a few. The law recognises that digital assets can be owned. However, there is no consistency between assets and you may find that some of your most valuable assets are mere licences to use a third-party provider’s service. This has significant consequences when attempting to access, manage and transfer digital assets after death.
Flexible working is the future of the workplace.
As well as the obvious benefits to both employers and employees of continuing to combine working from home with going into the office and more flexible hours, there are employment law and other legal implications that employers will need to consider. Each organisation’s requirements will be slightly different.
Supporting businesses in digital transformation.
The metaverse. Artificial intelligence. E-sports. Cryptocurrency. Traditional business models and industries have either been or are being disrupted by digital innovation, paving the way for new opportunities and changing “the way that things are done.”
