What does estate planning mean for you?
Hardly anybody knows what “estate planning” means. People think it is about death and dying. They are wrong. Estate planning, as it is practised by DBA Accountants of Stirling, WA, for the benefit of our clients, is about Life and the excellent living of it. It is a dynamic process that allows you to accumulate, maximise, organise and protect your estate as it grows and evolves, from young adulthood to after your death.
Every estate plan has as its foundations these essential documents:
A valid Will
An Enduring Power of Attorney (“EPA”)
An Enduring Power of Guardianship (”EPG”)
A valid superannuation beneficiary nomination
There are more, but these are the essentials.
