Frequently asked questions

Your estate is essentially everything you own, including your home and other property, car, bank accounts, investments, pension, life insurance, furniture and personal possessions.

An estate plan gives you a say in how your possessions are given to the people or organisations you care about. It arranges your affairs and leaves a written record of your wishes and intentions. Basically, it details how you want your property, belongings, cash and financial assets distributed, and to whom.

Estate planning helps to minimise tax, avoid legal tie-ups and ensures your wishes are followed. Importantly, if you die without a surviving spouse/parent to take care of your children, you can express who you would like to have custody of them.

Everyone, regardless of financial status or age, can benefit from having an estate plan – assuming you have assets to leave and people to leave them to.

Estate planning protects your personal assets, including some aspects of your business. Succession planning focuses exclusively on safeguarding the continued operation of a business. Estate planning doesn’t guarantee the continuation of your business, but focuses on the distribution of your assets.

It is recommended that an estate plan should be started the moment you become a legal adult, with an update every three to five years. While we understand that for most young adults putting an estate plan in place is not a priority, there are a few life events that should prompt you to put in place or update your estate plan, no matter how old you are.

These include:

  • Home ownership
  • Marriage
  • Birth of children/grandchildren
  • Divorce
  • Inheritance
