Reasons To Make A Will

Dec 5, 2007
Few people know the ins and outs of will making and why you should do it. However, it's actually a straight - forward process and once it's done you don't have to worry about it anymore unless you wish to make any amendments to it.

Financially will making is very important because it protects your possessions from going to someone who you don't necessarily want them to. You have complete control over who gets what and you may even choose to leave some of your money to a charity. It is also important to keep it updated in case circumstances change. For example, you may get divorced and therefore it's unlikely that you'll still want everything to go to your ex partner.

Sometimes you can find that less inheritance tax has to be paid for those with a will than those without one. This is because any good will making company will offer you advice about how to reduce tax rates which means that your friends and family are left with more money. With advice on hand whenever you need it will making couldn't be a simpler process. You don't even need to have it drawn up or witnessed by a solicitor. However, it is generally advisable to use one or to at least check that it has been drawn up correctly. Any mistakes or misunderstandings can take time to sort out which will delay the process of your possessions being distributed.

Another reason why will making is advisable is because you can learn of ways to become exempt from inheritance tax. If you leave everything to your partner, normally there won't be any tax to pay because they count as an exempt beneficiary. You can leave 300,000 pounds to anyone in your will and this amount will be tax free, anything above that is taxed at 40 percent. As well as this any money you leave to charity is exempt from inheritance tax which means that the full amount you requested to leave to your chosen charity will go directly to them.

The reasons for will making are endless and this is something that any company who draws them up will be able to talk to you about. Where your money is going and who will look after your children are both very important things to consider but without a will you have no control of these things. These are just some of the reasons why more and more people are looking into will making earlier on in life rather that leaving it as late as possible.
