Benjamin Franklin is reputed to have said that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. Estate planning involves an enormous interaction with both. It is something that faces everyone. Ignore it at your peril. Do you have a will that reflects your current position and
your current intentions?
If not, why not? Can't make up your mind what you
want to do? Are you too busy looking after clients? Are you regularly travelling on aircraft or driving on dangerous streets?
What about your top 10 clients? Have they got their houses in order?
