We Are Beams Will Week takes place from 11-15th October and is the perfect opportunity to make or update your Will and support We Are Beams at the same time.
“Nearly everyone who comes in to make a Will says, it’s been on my to-do list for years. Generally, people think it’s very complicated, but it really isn’t” explains Andrea Kershaw who is a solicitor at our Will Week partners, Thackray Williams, who will waive their usual fee in return for a donation to We Are Beams.
A Will is vital if you wish to be certain as to who will benefit from your money and other possessions when you die.
Without a Will the law provides as to whom gets what and this may not reflect your real wishes. For example, some people incorrectly assume that on their death everything they own will automatically go to their partner. However, this is not invariably the case and making a Will guarantees your wishes will be met.
In addition, a Will allows you to specify funeral arrangements and to ensure those that you care about, especially children, are provided for and it will give you the opportunity to appoint a guardian for your child
Having your Will professionally written may also help you to reduce Inheritance Tax.
