Estate planning is an essential exercise to ensure that administration expenses and the Receiver of Revenue does not place an impossible burden on family members after the death of a spouse or parent.

Financial complications can occur as a result of not having properly planned one’s affairs prior to death as this cannot be rectified afterwards.

Even the wealthiest can cause their families to suffer severe blows if the property that forms part of estates has not been properly identified and safeguarded by legal experts.

This, of course, also has unlimited benefits of saving tax and safeguarding one’s assets while alive and well.

Correct and careful drafting of wills and professional estate planning is the solution we offer to ease the burdens and complexities of the liquidation and distribution process of deceased estates.

This includes transfer of property to trusts and the most efficient ways of saving money when doing so.
