Distributing your estate
What is involved in distributing your estate? These are some of the things you may need to consider:
- Who are your heirs (legal heirs, charitable or other organisations, or people other than family members you want to leave part of your estate to)
- Have you made a will?
- Are you married? If so, is there a prenuptial agreement?
- Have you made arrangements for your pension? Who are the beneficiaries?
- What do you want to leave to your partner and/or children?
- Have you given any gifts in the past?
- What is the value of your assets?
- Are there any debts?
Bequeathing your business
In addition to the points listed above, as a business owner, you should consider your company. Do you want to hand the business over? If so, have you prepared a succession plan? How will you find a suitable person to take over your business? Do you need to train someone to manage your company? An independent expert will often be able to provide answers to all these fundamental questions. This is where we excel! Need help? Call or email us! We’re happy to advise.
