Passing the torch: Is now the time to gift the family farm?
A properly drawn up Will can give you peace of mind and ensure that your estate will be dealt with according to your wishes. It will also ensure your family and other chosen beneficiaries are taken care of. It may be that you have dependants that need to be provided for or you may wish to lay down some conditions relating to your assets.
Whatever your situation, regardless of whether you are single, married, divorced with children or in any other arrangement, you will benefit from having a Will drafted to address your individual circumstances and protect your estate should something unexpected happen.
We can advise you and help manage your affairs so that your estate is in good shape with efficient and effective tax planning that will minimise tax liabilities for you as well as your heirs. Planning for the future is not just about tax.
You will want to make sure that those left behind are not left in financial difficulties. We will ensure that any Will we draw up for you is drafted so as to protect the people and things you care about.
We can help you to create a simple, straight forward Will at a fixed cost if that is what you wish to do but your Will is unique to you and is one of the most important documents you will ever sign. It is therefore an investment in your family’s future.
