Trust and Estate Planning
Trust and estates have taxes on them, so you’ll need professional accountants’ advice on how to manage them. Our experience has shown us the importance of planning and preparation so that there will be peace among your beneficiaries.

Preparing an Estate/Trust
Our specialists will guide you through the process of developing an estate or trust account, but we recommend that you consider a few things before our first consultation. We would be happy to explain our process to you in further detail when you call for your appointment. Here are some of our suggested ways to prepare:
Document Your Assets
Sit down and write down all your assets as well as all your intended beneficiaries. This process can be very helpful for your consultation and ultimately, the distribution and delegation of your assets.
Close Unnecessary Accounts
Think about all the accounts that you have, write them down and bring them to your consultation. Our specialists will be able to help you assess which ones are important and which are unnecessary. Having only a few accounts will make your estate more manageable.
Try and keep track of your accounts and your transactions between them. Having a record that’s clear and concise will avoid any disputes later on. It will also help us be able to provide you with better counseling and advice.
Executor of Estate
The executor, or administrator, of the estate is someone chosen, or someone appointed with the estate. The executor performs the following tasks:
- Closing bank accounts
- Making transactions
- Paying estate bills
- Signing off on vehicle sales or ownership transfers
- Filing estate tax returns
- Selling real estate
