Estate planning

Whilst few of us like to think about dying, equally few of us can live with the thought that we have not made adequate provision for family and friends who survive us. Since none of us know when we shall die, this means making the necessary provisions now.

Legislation governing the passing on your estate to your chosen beneficiaries requires you to plan well in advance and the earlier you make the arrangements, the greater your chance of taking full advantage of the tax opportunities available, thereby maximising the amount that goes to your beneficiaries.

It is equally important when planning to transfer your estate that you make adequate provision for yourself and your spouse in your later years. Striking this balance calls for considerable skill and foresight - and a detailed knowledge of the tax regime.
