It is important to take care of the people you love. For many people it is easy to remember this on a daily basis, yet equally easy to avoid thinking about what might happen when you are no longer here. But without careful estate planning, you could leave your loved ones with serious legal and financial burdens.
If someone dies intestate (without a will) it can be a struggle for the family to receive anything at all. Even if you have a will, it is important to ensure that it reflects your current wishes and financial position, and is making the most of the options available to you.
Good estate planning will help to maximise the value of your estate and eliminate uncertainties over its distribution. Estate planning requires a thorough understanding of inheritance tax law, as well as careful forward thinking; for example in considering estate transfers or making provision for retirement needs. The earlier you start planning, the more effective your arrangements will be, and you can relax in the knowledge that you are looking after the people who matter most.
