The importance of estate planning
There are many aspects of estate planning, but each step focuses on protecting your wealth and passing it onto the next generation. Estate planning is not exclusively for those with vast amounts of money or property. Everyone wants to leave as much behind as possible to provide for their loved ones. Furthermore, without a proper plan in place for what will happen after you pass away, your estate could become complicated and costly disputes may arise. The estate planning process makes sure you have everything in place and allows you to decide exactly how you would like your asset to be distributed.
What is involved in estate planning?
What exactly is involved in estate planning will depend on your specific circumstances, your beneficiaries and what will be included in your estate.
Making a Will
Making a Will is the fundamental pillar of estate planning. The process of writing a Will can help you to identify all of the property, possessions and interests that will make up your estate, and you can then take further steps to protect your wealth.
Inheritance tax planning
Through proper estate planning, you can mitigate the amount of tax your estate is liable to pay. Our solicitors are highly experienced in providing advice on inheritance tax planning as part of the estate planning process and we can ensure the overall value of your assets is not reduced by inheritance tax where possible.
If you own a family business, estate planning may mean ensuring that this business is passed onto the next generation, or even sold and the profits distributed. Deciding what to do with the family business can be complicated, we can help you to understand how best to proceed. Our cross-discipline team can offer both estate planning and business advice.
