ESTATE PLANNING & TAXATION

Making a Will

It is important that a Will is made properly, that your wishes are carried out and that your intended beneficiaries benefit correctly. Failing to make a Will results in your Estate being governed by the Rules of Intestacy which may leave your intended beneficiaries not as well provided for as you wished. If you are thinking of making a Will come and see us first.
