To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin, there are only two certainties in life. The first is death, and the second is taxes.
Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about the latter, however in regards to the former we do have control over what will happen to our assets in the future.
So many times we have heard “I don’t need a will, I don’t have anything to leave.” But that is not the only reason to make a will. One of the most important functions of a will is to appoint someone who will act for you, tidying up your affairs and dealing with those assets you do have.
Surprisingly, not many people have adequately prepared themselves and their families for the future.
Have you made your will and arranged your power of attorney?
If yes, have your circumstances changed since you last updated your will? The addition of a new family member, separation from a partner, or even purchase of a new pet should all be accounted for in your will. Call us today on 07 4038 8300 to arrange an appointment.
