The importance of making a Will cannot be overstressed. Each Will is tailor made for the client taking into consideration his or her personal financial circumstances, family and dependents and the possible incidence of taxation and in particular inheritance tax.
After death it is important to those who are left behind that the estate is administered with sympathy as well as efficiency. It involves obtaining Valuations of all the assets of the estate, agreeing the tax liability, petitioning the court for the appointment of an executor or executrix, where appropriate, and applying for Confirmation. Thereafter, with the benefit of Confirmation, engathering in the assets of the estate and administering them according to the Will or according to law, as the case may be. Where Trusts are created, we can assist in the administration and accounting process of the Trust as well as providing advice for the Trustees.
