Estate planning might not be something you’ve considered, it completely depends on your private circumstance and the degree of concern you have with how your wealth is passed on.

We’ve outlined a few key points about estate planning and how we can help you.
What’s a power of attorney?
If you were to become incapable of handling your affairs, control of your assets could revert to a person appointed by a court. It would be more useful if you had an enduring power of attorney set up now so that if you cannot manage your affairs, someone you trust and have chosen to act for you, can make the important decisions affecting you and your affairs.
What about a family trust?
A family trust is a common arrangement used by small businesses to share the business’ income in the most tax-effective way among beneficiaries within the family group and to protect family assets.
It is most useful where the business is generating income and experiencing growth. It involves setting up a trust with a nominated trustee, who has responsibility for distributing the estate to your nominated beneficiaries. It can also be used to protect assets from dependants’ creditors or if a dependant isn’t capable of managing money. If you’re interested in setting up a family trust, get in contact with us today to talk it though!
What does it mean to give guardianship?
A guardian can make decisions regarding where you live and your medical care if you lose the capacity to make your own decisions. It’s important to select someone you trust as soon as any signs appear that you may need these decisions made for you.
What happens to Super?
The death benefit is usually paid to your nominated beneficiaries. The balance will be paid depending on who you have nominated as beneficiaries.
If you are insuring through your superannuation, you need to understand the difference between binding and non-binding beneficiaries as well as some issues to be aware of. If you have insurance outside of superannuation, you can nominate anyone to be a beneficiary.
The best way to look after your family’s future is to ensure your will accurately reflects your intentions after you pass. To help get your estate in order, make an appointment today.
