CRYPTOCURRENCY AND YOUR WILL

CRYPTOCURRENCY AND YOUR WILL Fri, 9 Nov 18
Although acquiring digital currency is increasingly common in this day and age, it is also an area which, due to its relatively recent surge in popularity, is often overlooked when people are having a new Will drafted. Cryptocurrency or digital currency (such as Bitcoins) is big business, with a very large (and unquantifiable) number of investors worldwide, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

CAN WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR RESUME COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU?

CAN WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR RESUME COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU? Thu, 27 Sep 18
Most people would concur that it is a common occurrence or perception that people will have, at least some, incorrect facts, inconsistencies, exaggerations or untruths in amongst the true working and education history detailed in their resumes.

DO YOU NEED A TESTAMENTARY TRUST?

DO YOU NEED A TESTAMENTARY TRUST? Thu, 27 Sep 18

The drafting of a Testamentary Trust is one of our preferred estate planning methods, as it essentially doubles as a trust deed. This allows for a separate trust to be established for each primary beneficiary, and further, allows the document to specify the power that the beneficiaries and trustees under the Will can exercise, as well as enabling the disbursement of the testators estate into each of the nominated trusts.
