Will Preparation

Making a Will is key to ensure your assets pass to those that are important to you and to ensure that your estate passes in a tax effective manner.

There are many good reasons to make a Will.

Having a Will enables you to:

  • Decide how your assets will be shared - if you don’t have a Will, the law says who gets what
  • Appoint guardians for any children under 18
  • Make sure your partner is provided for if you’re an unmarried couple (whether or not it’s a same-sex relationship)
  • Ensure you don’t pay more Inheritance Tax than necessary
  • Appoint executors to sort out your estate following your death and act as a trustee of any ongoing trust in your Will

Putting a Will in place now during your lifetime reduces conflicts amongst family and friends after your death and helps to remove unnecessary legal and financial problems at a difficult time.

A Will can also make provision for the following:

  • Family members of first and second marriages and unmarried partners
  • The disposal of business assets to ensure succession within the business
  • Inheritance tax savings using reliefs and exemptions
  • A clear structure for future tax planning and long-term asset protection for the next generation and beyond
