  1. Facing a Grey Divorce? Read these 7 Critical Issues first

    Comment
    Divorce is difficult at any stage of life, but it could be more complex to navigate when you are older, approaching retirement, or already retired. In order to make sure everyone is treated fairly in a divorce, it’s important to consider these 7 critical issues for older couples seeking a separation. What is a grey divorce? A grey divorce, or a silver splitter, is a term for a demographic trend of a high divorce rate for older couples who have been married for a very long time. These individuals may have married young to start a family, and followed a traditional family structure of the man going out to work and the woman staying home to raise children. Once their adult children have grown up and started their own families, couples...
  2. What scams are easy to fall for?

    Comment
    Sometimes it can feel as though there are bad guys and dangers around every corner. It’s not pleasant to live with this idea, but it can feel very real at times.

    Comment
     We don’t need to tell you how difficult the process of dealing with a will can be. There are so many emotional elements tangled up in the whole ordeal, and that is the case even if there are no big disagreements or major issues to deal with. We have all been in a situation where the will has been contested. We all know someone in our family or close circle who has fallen out with people for good over a disagreement in a will.

    There comes a time in everyone’s life where reality kicks in, and you have to start thinking about drafting a will for the inevitable. Some people decide to make a will at the age of 25, and some do not think it is necessary to go through the whole ordeal. If this is the case, by the time you reach your 50s it  is highly advised to reconsider. Should your will be drafted in advance; you may be able to reduce the amount of inheritance tax applicable.

  7. How to Make Writing Your Will A Positive Experience

    Comment
       On your list of fun and exciting bucket-list experiences to tick off, writing your will probably won’t make the cut. We have a tendency to feel uncomfortable when the subject of death arises, it’s a topic we try to avoid where possible and have a habit of sweeping it under the rug rather than dealing with the inevitable. It’s one of life’s only certainties, we will all die someday and it’s important that we accept this fact and take the appropriate steps to ensure all of the formalities are in place for when we do pass. The death of a loved one is an extremely testing and emotional time, you will often feel helpless and experience feelings of emotion that...
  8. How to prevent a family will fallout if a child dies before a parent 

    Comment
    Article by Polly Coram, solicitor with Jones Myers wills and trust department To minimise legal costs, many parents who want to leave their estate to their children entrust its administration to friends and family instead of appointing a legal advisor. A question we are frequently asked is, what will happen to the inheritance if a child passes away before the parent? A competent Will writer would advise the parent, known as the testator, to include a substitute provision. This makes it clear who their intended inheritance passes to – and in what shares – if a child dies first. However, we have witnessed a rise in homemade and simple wills that neglect to include this detail. How to avoid a dispute between surviving children Omitting this provision can spark a dispute between the surviving children over...
  9. Inheritance Planning: How to legally give money to your children

    Comment
    Article by Faye Watts   If you’re lucky enough to have money or property to leave to your children, Faye Watts of www.fuseaccountants.co.uk looks at how to do it, and shares a word of warning… Let’s start by saying that there’s nothing wrong with wanting to give money to your children in the most tax efficient way possible. You’ve already paid tax on that money when you earned it, so doing your best to save it from the tax man is not unethical, greedy or immoral. This isn’t tax evasion, its legitimate inheritance tax planning. So, let’s look at the key ways that you might like to help your children out both while you’re still alive, and when you’re gone. Giving gifts If you give your child (or anyone) a gift...
  10. Four things you probably didn’t know about inheritance tax

    Comment
    Article by Naomi Webb It’s fair to say that no taxes are overly popular, yet there is a particular dislike reserved for inheritance tax – the most hated of them all. This is a tax that takes a slice of the wealth left behind by some people when they die to go back into the coffers of the state. Whether you think that is fair is up to you but it exists, and how much do we actually know about it? The truth is, other than a passing knowledge of its existence, very few of us even knows the basics. Here are your key questions answered: Who must pay inheritance tax? Very few estates actually have to pay inheritance tax. The figure for 2016/17 is set to stand at about eight per cent – or...
