Estate Planning sounds a bit too grand right?  You don’t think you need it.   You think that only multi-millionaires need it.  You’re thinking, “I have a will.  I don’t need that. “

Estate Planning sounds a bit too grand rightSadly, you’re wrong.  You do NEED it.  People oftentimes overlook 3 major things: taxation, marriage breakdown and bankruptcy.   Those 3 are eventualities in life that you need to prepare for.

Remember, TAXATION can be in the form of capital gains and stamp duty.  By having just a simple will, the ATO can charge you with taxation, because a simple will denotes that a property transfer has been made to your children and there are capital gains.

Another thing you need to remember is that marriages breakdown.  Divorces happen.  Nasty ones at that.   You need to make sure that you have your assets protected and your children’s inheritance is intact.  A bitter ex-wife of your child can sue your child and take everything he has including his inheritance.

Bankruptcy is another eventuality.  Your children may go bankrupt and all their inheritance from you will just automatically go to their creditors.  Sounds really horrific right? But there is a way to stop that.  A three (3) generational testamentary wills would be greatly beneficial.  It provides you with tax savings, protects your assets from Family Court and bankruptcy.
