Tax Effective Asset Protection, Wills & Estate Planning
As Benjamin Franklin once said, nothing is certain in life except death and taxes.
That’s why you need to plan for these two certainties in the most tax effective way.
At it’s most basic level, effective asset protection separates ownership of assets from risk – the most common risk being claims arising from personal or business creditors, negligence actions, or disaffected family members.
Effective asset protection ties in with your estate planning. And the most tax effective form of estate plan is to have a testamentary trust set up in your will.
This trust, which starts once you die, protects your assets and allows your children to receive tax-free income of about $20,000 p.a. Without a testamentary trust in your will, that income would be taxable.
