A Will is a document giving instructions as to how your estate is to be divided on your death. It is important for every person to make a Will as, without one, the law will determine who is entitled to your estate. We have many years of experience and knowledge in this area and can assist to ensure that your wishes and intentions are set out clearly and in the correct legal format.
In addition to making a Will is it important to discuss with your Solicitor the extent of your Estate because of Capital Acquisitions Tax (Inheritance tax), in particular when the estate is very large but also when the beneficiaries of your Estate will not be your children. We are qualified to discuss all aspects of Capital Acquisitions Tax and all reliefs available to our clients.
