Estate planning

Planning ahead is a good thing to do. With estate planning you can decide what happens to your money, possessions - even pets - if something happens to you.

But estate planning is useful in other ways too: it can help you minimise any inheritance tax liability and ensure your wishes are carried out in the event of your death or if you need to go into care as well.  

There's no substitute for professional legal advice, but we hope this information will help you understand more about estate planning.
