British Expat working abroad without a Will? Protect your family, savings and investments for total peace of mind.
Why expats need a Will
Who needs a Will?
- If you’re an expat living in a foreign country and die without a valid Will there could be severe consequences
- There may be difficulty unfreezing bank accounts and other assets
- There may be conflict between intestacy laws in your home country and the laws in which you reside
- There may be difficulties over funeral arrangements
- Protect your savings, investments and other assets
- Pass your estate to the right people and protect them from inheritance tax
- Plan who would care for your children if something was to happen to you and/or your spouse.
How we operate
- If you are single you may wish to gift assets to your partner, family, friends and charities
- If you are married don’t assume your spouse will automatically receive your estate
- If you are a parent you will need to appoint a guardian for your children and ensure funds are in place for their care
- If you are approaching retirement your existing Will may need reviewing to include grandchildren and/or any changes of circumstances
- For all who wish to reduce inheritance tax liability and arrange for orderly estate planning
