Estate Planning involves making plans for the transfer of your estate after death. Your estate is all the property that you own – this can include cash, clothes, jewellery, cars, houses, land, retirement, investment and savings accounts, etc. Estate Planning usually has several objectives and goals which include:
- Making sure most of the estate is transferred to your beneficiaries
- Paying the least amount of taxes on your estate
- Assigning guardians for minor children (if any)
- Setting up of trusts for your children and family
Regardless of your net worth, it is important to have a basic estate plan in place. An estate plan makes sure your family and financial goals are met after you die, and must be reviewed on an on-going basis in the event of:
- Accruing and / or creation of assets
- The use of these assets during your lifetime
- The final division of these assets during your lifetime or at your death
