When most people think of estate planning, they think of Wills. But estate planning is much more than that. It's a process of creating a detailed plan for your assets and deciding who will inherit them after you die, whilst ensuring the lowest tax liabilities. Estate planning may seem like something only for the wealthy, but it is something that everyone should do.
Estate Planning includes creating a Will, setting up trusts, or other tax-efficient structures and appointing a Power of Attorney.
These things allow you to make sure your assets go to the people you want them to go to after your death. Without Estate Planning, your loved ones could face a lot of legal hassle and expense in trying to distribute your property, which often ends up in a family conflict.

When you think of Estate Planning, what comes to mind? If the thought of estate planning conjures up thoughts of complex legal documents and overwhelming financial decisions, you're not alone. However, estate planning doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. In fact, there are several benefits to implementing an estate plan. Here are just a few:
Estate Planning is one way to take control of your life (through LPAs) and ensure that your wishes are carried out after you're gone (via Will), and that your assets create as little tax liability for your loved one as possible (through IHT Planning).
Probate is the process by which a court oversees the administration of a deceased person's estate. Estate planning can help to avoid probate and ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes directly after your passing.
Estate Planning can help reduce the amount of taxes that your loved ones may owe after you die.
If something happens to you, having an estate plan in place can provide security for your spouse or children by ensuring they will still have access to important financial resources.
While no one likes thinking about death, Estate Planning can provide peace of mind in knowing that you've done everything possible to protect yourself and your loved ones ahead of time.
