    It is never too early to plan your estate. If it is large, it could be exposed to inheritance tax at 40%, and if it is small, advance planning can help you ensure that your assets will go to your chosen beneficiaries.

    Where should you begin?

    We suggest you start by addressing any unplanned key areas of estate planning this may include will writing, inheritance funds, financial objectives and life assurance. Below you will be able to download our estate planning checklist.

    Making a Will

    Estate planning begins with the following decisions:

    • Who will inherit your assets?
    • When should the recipients receive them?
    • What limitations will be placed on the recipients?

    A Will should also stipulate who is to be your minor child(ren)’s guardian. Although making a Will makes your decision legally binding, the Will can be amended any time you change your mind.
