Happy star wars day! One of my favourite characters was Obi Wan - originally played by the late Sir Alec Guiness. When Sir Alec passed away in 2000 his estate was approx. ÂŁ2.5million, but it continues to receive 2% of all funds made by the Star Wars franchise, so I expect it's worth a whole lot more now! #maythe4thbewithyou #theestatethatkeepsongrowing #estateplanning #Wills #starwars #CarsonHughes

In hard times it's important to look for positives; if you have been wanting to gift some of your estate to help reduce inheritance tax liabilities, but been worried by Capital Gain Tax, many assets have fallen in value so could be subject to less CGT! And shares that are gifted are calculated for IHT on the value at the time they were given - even if they rise again after...which they hopefully will 🤞#silverlinings #giftingunderCOVID19 #estateplanning #makehaywhilethesunshines #giftthehayonarainyday #CarsonHughes #speaktoyourfinancialadvisertoday (get in touch if you need a Financial Advisor)

Happy 50th Earth Day 🌍 and it is a special time for the earth with lower pollution levels and improved water quality in key wildlife areas. We're especially enjoying the images of the wildlife returning to the clearer Venice water ways, the goats herding in Llandudno town centre and the amazing number of baby turtle making it to the sea from hatching in Thailand #EarthDay2020 #makingthebestofit #nature #wildlife #CarsonHghes

I've included some strange requests for funeral wishes in my clients Wills; bell attached to finger from the grave, 20mins late for funeral etc. but thankfully none as odd as the late Hannah Beswick who was so concerned about not actually being dead when she died in 1758 that her doctor mummified her and put her inside a grandfather clock with her face in view so he could keep checking that she was "still" dead 😯 #wholenewmeaningtoclockface #wewritewhatyouwant #butmightadviseagainstthis #strangesaturdaystories #sharetosupportsmallbusinesses #CarsonHughes

It's a daily conversation at the moment to help our clients figure out how they can safely have their Wills and LPA's witnessed while still adhering to social distancing and lockdown. There are ways, don't let it stop you #staysafewhilesigning #dontputitoff #askushow #CarsonHughes

I don't think you'll be surprised to know that Will writers have seen a 30% increase in enquiries in recent weeks. I'm confident this will also mean more people are looking online/self drafting. In times of uncertainty, rushed decisions can be made so I would recommend now, more than ever, speak to a professional. Chat through your plans and options so the Will created will still be valid in decades to come, not just this time of worry. If you know someone wanting to draft their Will, please pass on my details #happytohelp #itisagoodtimetowriteagoodWill #dontrushyourWill #CarsonHughes

When Audrey Hepburn passed away in 1993 she had prepared her Will and made her plans. These included gifting her memorabilia collection to her 2 sons. However they could not agree on who should get what! So over tbe next 22 years they argued things out including court proceedings to finally resolve the issues in 2015 #whensiblingsdontagree #thinkofthelegalcosts #myeyesarewatering #planfortheworst #Wills #gifting #CarsonHughes

Two of Hollywood's leading men who have both sadly passed away leaving behind daughters. one wrote their Will age 28 leaving everything to his sole daughter, the other died age 28 but left a Will written before having his daughter, meaning she was not a named beneficary. Thankfully in both cases their daughters have been the beneficiaries of their estate but you can imagine one process was much more secure and straightforward than the other #protectyourchildren #itsnevertoosoontowriteyourWill #reviewyourWillregularly #fathers #daughters #CarsonHughes

You might not be surprised to know that your funeral wishes are recorded in your Will, but you might be surprised at how much detail you can include. Muhammad Ali included details of plans for his Islamic funeral, memorial service- including a festival and a public event to host at least 15,000 of his fans! It was an amazing celebration of life. Help your loved ones make the right decisions by expressing your wishes either in your Will or with a funeral plan (or both 😀) #wecanhelpwithboth #getintouch #taketheguessingoutofsayinggoodbye #CarsonHughes

Over recent weeks we've been researching and discussing what we can do to help people involved in surrogacy.

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 £950k passing on tax free 👌#theresstilltimetogetdownononeknee #romancecanbepractical #happyvalentinesday #CarsonHughes

06/02/2020

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 ÂŁ270k of your estate (up from ÂŁ250k) 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

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
