Sept. 26, 2011 - PRLog -- Writing a will often forces people to face reality and come to terms with their own mortality, something we all naturally want to shy away from. Sometimes it can seem easier to avoid the issue entirely by not writing a will, but this can only lead to additional heartache for those loved ones left behind at an already stressful time.

Plus, without a will, there’s one beneficiary who will definitely benefit from all your years of hard work and it probably won’t be your nearest and dearest, it’ll be the taxman.

To help people understand some of the issues surrounding will writing and inheritance tax planning, Tallents Solicitors, in association with independent financial advisers, Cockburn Lucas, are jointly hosting a free seminar at 10am in the Minster Suite at the Saracen’s Head Hotel in Southwell on Thursday 20th October.

Speaking on behalf of Tallents will be Ann Farnill, a wills, trust and probate specialist with more than 13 years’ experience in private client matters. Ann says,

“Every person will be in a different situation when it comes to drawing up a will. Deciding how to divide up your estate can be a very sobering experience and it is often clouded by emotions running high as well, so this seminar aims to cover key topics that everyone should consider at the outset, such as inheritance tax planning, how second marriages may affect your will, providing for disabled beneficiaries, leaving monies to charities, Lasting Powers of Attorney and long-term care planning.”

Joining Ann will be David Ryan, an Associate Director of Cockburn Lucas, with over 20 years experience in providing investment and tax planning advice to his clients. He says,

“When it comes to retirement planning everyone wants to build their pre- and post-retirement income up to help provide the most comfort possible in old age. But many people forget to plan ahead for their own long-term care, or be aware of the tax implications surrounding Inheritance Tax.

“Cockburn Lucas has been providing independent, impartial and trustworthy financial advice for many years to help clients plan for their retirement securely. After all, no-one wants to leave their hard-earned cash to the taxman!”

Both experts will be on hand to answer attendee’s questions during the morning event. The seminar is completely free to attend but spaces are limited, so attendees are encouraged to reserve a space by calling Tallents on 01636 813411 or Cockburn Lucas on 0115 981 9529.
