If romance is dead in your household, there are other reasons to get married/civil partnered; assets passing between spouses are exempt from inheritance tax AND you can double up and use both tax allowances on second death, meaning a lovely Β£950k passing on tax free πŸ‘Œ#theresstilltimetogetdownononeknee #romancecanbepractical #happyvalentinesday #CarsonHughes

If you haven't written a Will then the law sets out what happens to your estate when you die, which is called Intestacy. And today the Intestacy law changed; if you have a surviving spouse they will inherit the first Β£270k of your estate (up from Β£250k) anything above that will be split 50% to the spouse and 50% between all your children. If there is no spouse it will all split between children. If this doesn't suit you then #getintouch #weallhaveaWill #intestacy #whowroteyours #CarsonHughes

JM Recruitment

Last week we descended upon Basingstoke to network along side other local businesses, whilst there we met Lisa of Carson & Hughes. Impressed by our views towards supporting the Armed Forces and after hearing how we support veterans and members of the wider armed forces community, Lisa got in touch to say hello and that she would like offer her discounts to all JM Recruitment drivers.

How amazing is that! As members of the Institute of professional Will writers (UK and Scotland). They can ensure you will receive a comprehensive, professional service of the highest standard.

So Drivers, if you don't have an up to date Will, why not get in touch with the team at Carson & Huges.

Another sad news story about how a carer is currently on trial in Reading Crown Court accused of starving her patient to death after forging his Will to make herself beneficiary. A good professional on going relationship with your Will Writer, registering and securely storing your Will can help defend your genuine wishes from attacks such as this. But it is awful the situations happen in the first place #makeyourwishesknown #Protectyourwishes

The brilliantly funny Terry Jones passed away last week after suffering with Frontotemporal Dementia and it's been confirmed that he successfully donated his brain to science to help advance our understanding of the condition. This type of organ donation is different from standard, and needs planning. If you would like more information, then please #getintouch #organdonation #donatetosciencetosavelivestoo #CarsonHughes

Today Lord Falconer will re-introduce the Assisted Dying Bill to the House of Lords. The Bill hopes to make it legal to assist a terminally ill person end their life legally. Currently the Forfeiture Rule in law means if you unlawfully kill someone, you can not benefit from their estate. So this Bill could help protect loves ones from that fate #assisteddying #givingpeoplechoice #law #CarsonHughes

Feel good Friday news; Matt and Michael in Dublin had been friends for over 50years, so when Michael lost his home due to recession, and with all other family gone, Matt invited him to move in. Furthermore he wanted to leave his house to Michael in his Will. The 2 friends went on to marry in 2017 so that no inheritance tax would be payable upon Matt's death when he passed in 2019 #friends #whenestateplanningworks #FeelgoodFriday #CarsonHughes

A little checklist if you're looking to get your life admin sorted this year;
Life insurance - do you have sufficient cover to repay your debts/support your family's living arrangements?
Critical illness/accident sickness cover - if you were unable to work for an extended period of time how would your finances suffer, how would you life change beyond the illness?
Trusts - have you put your life insurance and pensions (where applicable) in Trust? This ensures they get to recipients quicker and tax free
Your Powers of Attorney - if you needed someone to act for you, support you, or decide for you on a temporary or permanent basis who could take that role?
Your Will - to plan your estate, protect your estate from inheritance tax, disinheriting, legal challenges and family upset

The first Monday after New Year is said to be #nationaldivorceday when a spike occurs in the number of divorces filed following a stressful Christmas. Divorce affects inheritance pathways whether you have a Will or not. A previous spouse has a legal right to file a claim on your estate if they have never re-married. The only way of protecting your wishes; write a Will #getintouch #adviceisfree #CarsonHughes

Some Monday feel good news; the wife of the late Chester Bennington, Talinda Bennington has shared 50% of his estate royalties left to her with his ex-wife; Samantha. Apparently his Will made provision for all of his children but not Samantha. When Samantha filed a legal challenge, Talinda filed documents to confirm she would allow Samantha's claim - with no court room drama #resolution #supportingoneanother #goodvibes #CarsonHughes

Writing a Will isn't the end of the matter, things need to be checked and kept up to date. James Brown died on Christmas day in 2006, and 13 years later legal battles between ex and current wives, and children (all because he didn't update his Will between marriage 3 and 4) meant his estimated $100million estate at time of death is now estimated closer to $5million - and still not settled πŸ˜ŸπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ #wekeepintouch #wehelpyoustayuptodate #CarsonHughes
