A Will is a formal legal document that lets you:

  • appoint an executor to administer your estate;
  • nominate beneficiaries to inherit your estate;
  • make provision for beneficiaries with special needs;
  • consider tax effective options for the transfer of wealth;
  • establish a testamentary trust; and
  • leave directions regarding the appointment of guardians for young children, funeral arrangements and organ donation.

If you do not make a will your estate will be distributed according to fairly rigid intestacy rules. Your assets may not be distributed in accordance with your wishes.
