Estate planning is a very important yet often overlooked area. If done well it can result in your assets being passed on both in the way you intended and in a way which provides tax and asset protection effectiveness to your beneficiaries. If done poorly it can result in family disharmony or unintended tax consequences, especially where a business is involved.
Most people also have a poor understanding of estate planning. Did you know that assets held by a company or trust you control is not covered by your last will and testament? The same applies to your superannuation.
As your accountants, we at Roy & Carswell are in an ideal position to consider all of the assets that you own and control and put a tax effective plan together for your solicitor. We also consider succession planning for your business and any companies or trusts that you control.
