Estate planning to protect your assets

When you have worked hard throughout your life to acquire personal assets, it is important to plan how best to keep and use this wealth in later life and ultimately protect it for your family.

Nearly everyone has estate and assets, no matter how large or modest, that they would like to protect and pass on to future generations.

Estate planning to protect your assets can help to avoid threats to your assets. Threats can include: 

  • Inheritance tax
  • Capital Gains Tax
  • Care costs
  • Business failure
  • Forced inheritance, such as a child’s Legal Right or a cohabitant’s claim
  • Family or matrimonial issues

Effective estate planning can involve the use of fairly complex tools, such as Trusts. Other planning vehicles, like gift making, can be simple and straightforward. An up to date Will might be all that is required, or a Power of Attorney. We can offer straightforward, practical advice tailored to suit your particular circumstances.  

You may consider yourself too young, or not well enough off to consider protecting your assets. Experience tells us that it is never too early to start thinking about estate planning, no matter the value of your assets.
