In short, Estate Planning is the process of transferring assets to beneficiaries or next of kin, allowing more of an estate to be passed to chosen beneficiaries when a person dies in a tax-efficient way.

There are a variety of personal assets that must be considered when creating an estate plan, including:

  • Antiques
  • Debts
  • Investments
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Pensions
  • Property
  • Savings

This list is not exhaustive, and all assets should be considered as part of the Estate Planning process.

Solicitor for Estate Planning Cambridgeshire

There are various ways in which you might plan or organise your estate, including:

  • Wealth transfer to family or other beneficiaries whilst a person is alive in the form of gifts or trusts to remain tax efficient.
  • Donate to charitable organisations to reduce the inheritance tax rate on the estate’s remaining value. If 10% or more of the balance is donated to charity, the inheritance tax rate will be reduced from 40% to 36%.

In addition, your Will is a vital part of your estate plan, as failure to adequately disclose the intended outcome for all your assets and finances could lead to mislaying of the estate. Without a Will, your assets and finances will be distributed according to the rules of intestacy, which will likely mean that your wishes are not upheld.
