Estate planning is the process of arranging your assets and financial affairs in a way that ensures the transfer of your assets to your beneficiaries, in a tax-effective manner.

Although it may seem like a clinical process, the aim of estate planning is to minimise any potential conflict and emotional heartache for those who are left behind after you’re gone. In addition to making the necessary arrangements to care for your loved ones, an effective estate plan also includes provisions for your own lifestyle in your twilight years.

Estate Planning is all about choices you make now

Key benefits of estate planning:

  • The instructions in your estate plan are legally binding. You are able to specify how and when your beneficiaries will receive your assets when you pass away.
  • You can structure your affairs in such a way as to legitimately minimise taxation.
  • With a clear plan, precise instructions, and appropriate structures in place, you can have certainty about the administration of your estate.
  • Your beneficiaries will have a clear understanding of your wishes, thereby eliminating the potential for misunderstandings and family disputes.
  • Peace of mind, knowing you have made the necessary arrangements and your legacy will be managed according to your wishes.
  • Most of us want to be remembered in a good light after we pass away, as someone who made a positive impact on those we cared for. This is where an estate plan can help.
