The estate planning process includes:
- Estate planning strategy facilitation including consideration of all personal assets and assets held in other vehicles (as appropriate to your situation) including investment companies, discretionary trusts and retail and self-managed superannuation.
- Consideration of tax optimisation and creation of long-term tax effective vehicles for beneficiaries. Consideration of particular asset protection requirements post-death to cater for special family situations (e.g. minor beneficiaries, divorce situations, disabled beneficiaries).
- Preparation in partnership with our preferred legal practitioners of wills, enduring powers of attorney and binding death benefit nominations.
- Consideration of form of future death benefits, including lump sum, income streams or life interests based on dependent need, asset protection and tax circumstances.
