A properly drafted will is important for a number of reasons, the two most important ones being that it can ensure that your assets are transferred to the recipients that you intend, and it can also help to reduce Inheritance Tax.
Your circumstances may be suitable for a simple will. Alternatively, your affairs may require a more detailed arrangement to protect your assets against tax, divorce and other claims. In any event, you should review the provisions of your will regularly.
When preparing your will we will also provide advice regarding the exemptions, reliefs and planning opportunities available to enhance and protect your estate.
