Making a will is vital if you want to be certain that your wishes will be met after you die – and it can also make sure you don’t pay more Inheritance Tax than you need to.

Wills Estate PlanningIt can be easy to put off making a will, but the process may not be as difficult as you think. This guide is designed to highlight the benefits of making a will, the issues you should think about and the areas in which you need to seek professional advice. Remember, it’s important to review and update your will regularly to make sure it always reflects what you want to happen to your estate.

Throughout this guide you will find suggestions for organisations that can offer further information and advice about your options. Their contact details can be found in the ‘Useful organisations’ section.
