Throughout the UK many people pass away without making a Will, without any inheritance planning or without suitable people appointed to deal with their estate after their death. This often leads to additional inheritance tax being paid, additional capital gains tax liabilities, and arguments within families which could otherwise be avoided.
The law is changing and the need for us to plan and effectively organise our estates is greater than ever before. This will have major consequences on how best to draft your Will and your Will will need to be kept up to date with the legislative changes which are taking place.
At a time when emotions run high, the uncertainty about your final wishes and the financial protection you want to leave to your loves ones is of major importance to those that you leave behind. Failure to plan in later life and failure to have suitable persons to deal with your estate can expose your loved ones to difficulty, adverse tax implications and loss to the estate.
