Trusts can be extremely flexible tools used in professional estate planning. A trust is created by the transfer of an asset to a trustee who will look after it for the benefit of another person or persons. A trust can help you with both family-related and tax-related planning issues.
A legally valid will is central to ensuring that your wishes are followed in a timely, cost-effective and tax-efficient manner. It's important to review your will every few years because changes in the law or in your life can impact your will.
