Estate planning: more than making a Will

1800 305 568

What is estate planning?

Estate planning is the process of planning and recording your wishes for the distribution of your wealth after death. As this sounds straight forward, it is often assumed that 'estate planning' refers to the preparation of a Will. However, in some cases it's not that simple.

There are aspects of estate planning that go well beyond the Will. For example, how are family trust assets dealt with? What happens to superannuation? And how are jointly held assets treated?

Dealing with these issues requires specific estate planning advice and—in most cases—a review of your family trust deeds, superannuation funds and asset ownership arrangements.
