Wills, Trusts & Estates

Making a Will

There are many good reasons that could prompt you to make a Will.

The most common reasons for making a Will are that:

  • You can nominate trusted individuals to administer your estate
  • You can choose who will look after your children
  • You can decide who inherits what, how, and when they will receive the assets

A well-advised Will can achieve far more than these basic points. It can enable you to do the following:

  • You can reduce the inheritance tax bill faced by loved ones
  • You can lessen the potentially crippling effect of nursing home fees for your family
  • You can safeguard your surviving partner’s financial future at the same time that you protect your children’s future inheritance in the event that your surviving partner remarries or falls out with your children after your death
  • You can help a vulnerable family member to receive the full benefit of their inheritance without compromising the safety of the funds themselves

Making a Will may seem daunting but our expert team will ensure that your Will is tailored to meet your needs and wishes.

Tax Planning

With a little planning you can reduce the tax payable on your estate both during your lifetime and when you die. This could be through tax reliefs, allowances, trusts and other tax efficient arrangements. Deciding which options to take depends on your specific circumstances and what you want to achieve. You may be able to take some tax planning measures through your Will.
