about future planning
There are several steps you can take to ensure that your loved ones are protected in case of your death or if you were ill and unable to make your own decisions.
Contact us to discuss your requirements.
Trying to plan your legal affairs and finances for later life can include
- Minimising your Inheritance Tax liability
- Sorting out pre-paid funeral plans
- Setting up trusts for your family and protecting assets for future generations through a Will.
- Appointing Attorneys to manage your financial affairs and to make health and welfare decisions on your behalf by Lasting Powers of Attorney is also an important part of the process.
The strategy will be different for each family, due to their unique circumstances and views on life. Nonetheless, the best advice is to plan early and have the right practical legal advice.
