• Whenever a new year inevitably comes around, without hesitation the ‘new you’ attempts to make an appearance.

    While the regular new year’s resolutions are perfectly fine, have you ever thought about making a resolution to protect and provide for your family? And what better way to protect them than through a Will or lasting power of attorney (LPA)?

    By preparing a Will, you are making sure that your well-earned and sentimental assets will be passed to your loved ones. If you don’t have a Will in place, even if it’s an old Will, your assets may not pass to who you would have wanted them to. Preparing a Will may also be an efficient tax planning exercise, to ensure you are paying the right amount of Inheritance Tax.

    By preparing an LPA, you are preparing for a situation where you may not have control over your own decisions. Whether it’s because of a physical or mental impairment, an LPA allows someone to act on your behalf. Should the unfortunate event occur in 2020 where you need medication or even be admitted to hospital, a health and welfare LPA allows loved ones to make decisions and voice your opinion should you not be able to, even if just on a temporary basis.

    As the naughty elf disappears for another 12 months, bring out the organised angel for 2020!
