Minimizing taxes and preserving your assets
Taxes are most people’s largest expense in Canada. This is also true for assets you wish to transfer to your loved ones or causes (e.g. charitable giving). An estate plan can provide you with strategies to prevent a significant reduction of your assets due to taxes.
An estate plan can help you limit the liability exposure of your assets to protect them from possible lawsuits or other legal events.
Making sure your assets go to the ones you choose
The distribution of your assets can produce disputes between family members, add stress in a moment of grief, and could result in a costly process. An up-to-date will can reduce or eliminate this altogether and will ensure your assets are distributed in the way you choose.
