Stone King: New Year, New Will

January is often seen as the start of a new chapter and some people use the start of a new year as a time to reflect on their lives and make resolutions for the future. With the new year underway there is no better time to make a Will. 

If you already have a Will consider if there have been any changes since it was made. Life events such as marriage, divorce, the birth of a child or grandchild or the acquisition of a home or other significant assets often have an impact on the wishes in your Will. 

When a person dies without leaving a valid Will, their property (the estate) must be shared out according to certain rules. These are called the rules of intestacy. As a result of intestacy, your estate may not pass to your intended beneficiaries. By making a Will and keeping it up to date you can ensure that your estate passes to your chosen beneficiaries in the most tax-efficient way.
