  1. Inheritance Planning: How to legally give money to your children

    Comment
    Article by Faye Watts   If you’re lucky enough to have money or property to leave to your children, Faye Watts of www.fuseaccountants.co.uk looks at how to do it, and shares a word of warning… Let’s start by saying that there’s nothing wrong with wanting to give money to your children in the most tax efficient way possible. You’ve already paid tax on that money when you earned it, so doing your best to save it from the tax man is not unethical, greedy or immoral. This isn’t tax evasion, its legitimate inheritance tax planning. So, let’s look at the key ways that you might like to help your children out both while you’re still alive, and when you’re gone. Giving gifts If you give your child (or anyone) a gift...
  2. Work Less, Play More: How To Create Income Streams that let you Wind down Work

    Comment
    By Faye Watts If you’ve been asking yourself how you can perhaps wind down your hours at work,  and do more of what you enjoy doing,  tax advisor and founder of accountancy firm FUSE Accountants, Faye Watts has these suggestions for building alternative streams of income that will take the onus off your day job.

  3. 7 Signs You’re Playing Too Small With Money

    Comment
    Article by Faye Watts Founder of accountancy firm www.fuseaccountants.co.uk Faye Watts says that one of her frustrations is meeting women who play too small and don’t earn what they are capable of.  Here she identifies some signs that hint you might be missing out and not living up to your money potential. Worrying about paying more tax I really don’t get this one. You only pay more tax when you’re earning more money in the first place, so what’s the problem? I look upon it as an indicator that I’m doing well. If I wasn’t paying much tax then I’d be worried.  It’s this sort of thinking that holds women back from really going for it. Not having Serious Money Goals We’re all working to pay the bills and enjoy life, but what’s your money goal? Is it to invest in your own home, build a healthy pension pot or start a business?...
  4. Getting Married over 50? How to Protect Your Financial Assets Second Time Around

    Comment
    Article By Faye Watts   Divorce.  New Relationships. Remarriage. Life over fifty has the potential to get messy not only emotionally, but also financially. How many of us have heard horror stories about women conned out of their life savings after falling head over heels for someone they met online?  Or just the day to day messiness of entwining two families and their financial responsibilities. Faye Watts, founding partner at www.fuseaccountants.co.uk, looks at how to keep an eye on what’s yours when you move on. Why be cautious While it’s lovely to put on those rose coloured spectacles, many of us will have been through more than enough to hold onto what we could after our first marriage, and want to be a bit more careful this time around. Even if you’re a...
