Slide Our range of specialised services include Administration of Deceased Estates We have extensive experience in the administration of deceased estates and provide this service, which involves: The acceptance of the appointment as executor or executor's agent for a deceased estate. The winding up of the deceased estate as required by law. It is important to note that Executors should be selected for their ability to efficiently and effectively wind up your estate without delay for the benefit of the nominated beneficiaries. An estate can take six months to a year to wind up and much longer if the executor or agent is not competent or does not understand the formalities required. Estate Planning We have extensive experience in the drafting of Wills and Estate Planning. When advising a client regarding his or her Estate Planning, a detailed analysis of the client's affairs is carried out. An individual with a large asset base can minimize the effective rate of tax and estate duty by having a Will drafted and taking cognizance of his or her family situation and asset base. Depending on the value of a Testator/Testatrix’s estate and the intention of the client, various estate planning tools are available which are discussed with the client to maximize the assets available to his or her family on death. Slide Our range of specialised services include Wills & Codicils We provide specialist advice in drafting Wills applicable to each client’s individual requirements and wishes. It is imperative to obtain professional advice when drafting and executing a Will in order to avoid the many complications that could occur if a Will is not properly prepared. If you die without a Will (known as dying Intestate), the rules of intestate succession will apply to the winding up of your estate. Your assets may then be distributed to individuals to whom you would never have bequeathed your assets. The State will appoint an Executor, which is likely to cause delays. The Executor, too, may not be a person who you would have chosen. A well written Will can avoid the unnecessary complications when dying intestate. Trust Formation Trusts can be an effective estate planning tool and careful drafting is essential to ensure the intentions of the founder are dealt with correctly. Trusts can protect inheritances due to minor children, thereby avoiding payment of inheritances to the Guardian’s Fund. One is able to “freeze” the value of growth assets in the estate of the planner with the use of a Trust. Slide Our range of specialised services include Trust Administration Trustees have a fiduciary duty to administer the assets of the Trust for the benefit of the beneficiaries. They must understand their responsibilities and act with due care, diligence and skill in the performance of their duties. Tax Administration We provide tax consulting services, tax administration services in filing returns for income tax, PAYE, UIF, SDL and VAT. Money Market Investments – Investec Private Bank We provide an investment service whereby we offer competitive rates on Call.
