Around 60 per cent of his total earnings were made up of commission. When he took holiday he was only paid based on normal salary.

It strikes me that sometimes the rule of thumb can give a better snapshot of the state of the economy than pages of in depth analysis. Lately I’ve had more people talking to me about concerns of their Inheritance Tax (IHT) liability and what they can do about it.
