In uncertain and challenging times, it is always sensible to sit down, take a deep breath and clear your head and heart of panic to allow you to identify the things over which you do still have a certain amount of control and to take the opportunity to get your own house in order. You have to ensure that your personal and business continuity planning is in place and that your family is protected against serious financial risk should the unthinkable happen.

This is where estate planning is of vital importance and merely having a will in place is not always sufficient. There are numerous factors you have to consider before drafting your Will. In order to make informed decisions to put an effective plan in place, it is prudent to consult professionals who have insight into your affairs and have the knowledge to carefully assist and advise you on all these factors, which include the legal, financial and various tax aspects.
