Inheritance Planning

This course explains what you need to know if you’re thinking of making a will and what will happen if you don’t. Clear, non-legalistic language is used to explain how you can use your will to protect your children, provide for your dependants and save tax. Participants do not need any legal knowledge and the emphasis is on up-to-date legal knowledge and practical problem-solving. This topic is also available in Public Information Presentation form.

On completion participants will be able to:

  • Explain why and how to make a will
  • Outline the rules governing testacy and intestacy

  • Outline the role of executor/administrator in taking out probate
  • Outline the role of testamentary witness, guardian, trustee etc
  • Synopsise the inheritance rights of the family
  • Highlight changes in tax law
