We can help you approach estate planning in a practical and constructive way, and help to develop a plan that protects your assets from creditors, the government, excessive tax and family disputes.
Secure your legacy with Estate Planning
Proper estate planning goes beyond merely drafting a will. It’s a proactive measure to shield your assets and ensure a seamless, tax-efficient transfer of your wealth as per your desires.
Despite its importance, studies show that over 45% of Australians pass away without a will, leaving their assets distribution subject to a predetermined formula according to state and federal laws.
Moreover, even if you have a will, it may not cover all your wealth and assets. Complexities can arise depending on the location of your assets. For instance, did you know that in certain situations, your superannuation might not be part of your estate?
A strategy for the future of your Estate
Our expertise extends far beyond simple accountancy. With a thorough understanding of your business, assets, and financial affairs, we are uniquely positioned to explain the involved issues and guide you through the tax considerations.

- Should you use trusts for asset protection and tax efficiency?
- How can you ensure your SMSF forms part of your estate?
- Are your assets, business, and life insurance tax-effectively structured?
