Private Wealth Solicitor Abigail Pritchard has achieved a Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) qualification in recognition of her high levels of expertise in trusts and estates taxation.

The STEP advanced certificate in Taxation of Trusts and Estates (England and Wales) is the benchmark professional qualification in this area of law.

Abbie undertook many months of study followed by an exam to gain the qualification, during which time she had to demonstrate a high level of technical knowledge on capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

Abbie said: “The knowledge that I have gained through studying for the STEP exams is immensely useful in practice. Taxation in relation to trusts and estates can be complicated, so it is particularly pleasing to obtain a merit in this qualification in recognition of my expertise and understanding in this area.”

Beswicks’ Group Operations Director Ryan Yates added: “Congratulations to Abbie for being awarded this qualification – a fantastic achievement and extremely well deserved. Taxation of trusts and estates can be very complex and Abbie deserves the recognition for her expertise in this area.”
