SECURITY FOR YOUR FAMILY OR DEPENDANTS

Perhaps it’s not the sort of thing that you might like to talk about, but you need to ensure that you have made adequate provision for the financial consequences that could result following the death of either you or your partner.
Life assurance is a necessity… not an optional extra.
COVERING YOURSELF AGAINST CRITICAL ILLNESS
Naturally you expect to live a long and healthy life and we wish that for you too, however illness could strike when you least expect it, so you need to be prepared.

INCOME REPLACEMENT IF YOU BECOME ILL

To ensure that an adequate income will continue in the event of a long-term illness you should consider Income replacement cover.

INVESTING FOR YOUR FUTURE
You might think that investments are only for the wealthy, but that’s simply not true.
Don’t forget that almost every time you put money into any kind of institution, a bank or building society, you are relying on the performance of their investments to help your money grow.
Why not look into the possibilities of investing some of your income into a scheme that could provide an excellent return when you need capital in the future e.g. a cruise, wedding or to help you set up your own business.
What do you do if you are lucky or astute enough, to find yourself with a large sum to invest?
How many of us can honestly say that they understand all the in’s and out’s of the investment market.
To invest capital in the most tax efficient way that you can expect to provide an excellent return, with a minimum of investment decisions and paperwork, you want to speak to someone experienced, who you can trust, someone who is truly independent.

E Estate Planning
Grosvenor Beaumont Financial Planning Limited
Over 2.000 people die every day in the UK of whom only 400 have a Will.
If you die without a valid Will your dependants could suffer hardship and distress: Couples living together may find their partner’s estate is lost to them.
Your children could be made wards of court whilst the court decides who should act as their guardian.
If your spouse remarries, and does not make an appropriate Will, then the new spouse and not your children will benefit.
The law will make your Will for you and your immediate family may not automatically inherit all of your estate.
Your assets may be frozen for a long period of time, causing acute and unnecessary hardship to your family.
Unnecessary legal fees may be incurred to settle your estate.
Virtually all of your estate could be used to pay for long-term care costs. Your children may inherit little or nothing!
Everyone over the age of 18, whether they are rich or poor, should make a Will.
Peace of Mind
By making your Will, you have the knowledge that you have done the best for the ones you love and care for; having protected them from unnecessary additional stress of what will be a very difficult time for them.
A Tax Efficient Will
Around 2 million families are liable to inheritance Tax on their estates, increases in the value of property and the reluctance of successive Chancellor to increase the Nil Rate Band in line with property prices means that ordinary families face the prospect of paying large amounts of their estate to the Exchequer.
By making a Tax Efficient Will, you may reduce or even eliminate the inheritance Tax liability on your estate.

Protect your Family
A Will allows you to choose the Guardians of your children rather than allowing the court to do so.
A Will allows you to choose who handles your affair when you die and ensures minimum stress to your loved ones.
A Will allows you to choose who benefits from your estate and protects your loved ones from the Law of Intestacy.
Protective Property Trust
It is usual for parents to try to ensure that following their own death, their children will benefit from their estate. Unfortunately, in an increasing number of cases this does not happen.
Should the surviving spouse remarry, then die before their partner, the estate is likely to pass to the new partner and not the children.
Should the surviving spouse require long term care in a residential home or a nursing home, then the assets of the estate will be used to pay the cost for such care, until there is little left for their children to inherit.
There is an answer to these problems.
If you own your home in joint names, then a Protective Property Trust may be appropriate to protect your share from being transferred outside the family or being taken by the local authority to pay for the cost of long term care.
Lasting Power of Attorney
In the event that you are incapacitated and unable to look after your own affairs, a Lasting Power of Attorney appoints someone to act for you.
Also known as a “Living Will”, allows you to express your wishes regarding treatment in the event of you having a terminal illness.
