    the UK the deceased was living in Apart from Scotland if the estate is worth no more than 250 000 then the spouse gets everything but MUST live for 28 days after the first death Do NOT have your solicitor or accountant as one of your executors They may make a very convincing argument about how sensible it is From very painful personal experience I can state that this is a bad idea It means that solicitor or professional advisor must be involved in the handling of the estate This could mean higher fees than necessary Far better is to have other trusted friends or relatives as executors Tell them by all means get legal help with the job But get a fee quote from your solicitor and get a couple of others too That way you can ensure not too much money goes in fees Inheritance Tax IHT planning can be important especially if your estate as an individual or a couple exceeds 650 000 However do not let concerns over this tax prevent you from making a will Get that first will made even if you later change it when you have someone look at the IHT situation Make sure your nearest and dearest know where the will is located the safe of your solicitor is a good idea Also tell them who will be your executors though you don t have to tell everyone that Why did I say make your solicitor appointment this month Simples To avoid further procrastinating Get on with it Death is too important to leave to chance Adrian Huston a former tax inspector is a director of Belfast tax and accountancy firm Huston Co www huston co uk or 028 9080 6080 From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More Making it simpler to cope with daily stress Ever just hit an emotional or mental wall when you are just weary of dealing with people Staying in a reformed EU still makes sense Following last week s draft deal on plans to reform the EU the Prime Minister has called for businesses to speak up ahead of the EU referendum which is looking more likely to be in the summer Why risks posed by Brexit don t add up for province By John Simpson The Prime Minister is right when he emphasises that a Brexit would be an irreversible single decision no amendment no second chance

  • Heads should be knocked together on energy policy - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
