Why do you need a will ?

If you are in business that is likely to mean that you are hard at work building up a valuable business to look after you and your loved ones and provide a way of life. Life events affect work and vice versa. We would therefore encourage business owners to look at their personal planning to ensure that their wishes for their loved ones are just as well looked after
as their businesses.

Part of a business owner’s personal planning will probably include how the business is to be left, either on retirement or on the owner’s death, so that shares pass on to family members. Alternatively, owners may use a “cross-option” so that shares are bought by the company or the remaining shareholders so that loved ones are left with a lump sum instead of shares they may not know what to do with. If the business is not a limited company but a partnership, we can apply similar methods to ensure all eventualities are catered for.

If you don’t have a will in place, then the “rules of intestacy” kick in and this is not only a longer process for your loved ones to sort through, but also any discretion as to how your estate is dealt with evaporates. Effectively, the government’s rules will decide how your worldly goods, including your business assets, are divided up. From October 2014, it looks like this – and remember,“children” includes adopted and illegitimate children but not stepchildren:
