Joe Davies: Bond of Caution
“Be prepared and don’t throw [bond of] caution to the wind” Administering a deceased person’s estate can be a complicated and stressful process. A Bond of Caution (pronounced “kay-shun”) is an aspect of executry administration which can be an unexpected expense for the executors acting under someone’s estate, where the deceased has died without making a Will.
Laura Brown: Time to review your 2016 tax affairs!
With the 31st October paper filing deadline fast approaching, there is still time to have your tax affairs for the year to 5th April 2016 reviewed.
Fraser Scott: With the best of intentions
It is often a sense of duty that drives us to make a Will. We feel it is our own responsibility to put our personal affairs in order. For some, it is to avoid this burden falling on our families. For many, it is to take control of the distribution of our estates, to make sure it is shared among the right people, in the right proportions. For others, it is to minimise the potential for conflict after we are gone.
