Our Legacy Planning Services
No one likes to think about ill health, mental incapacity or even death. But the fact is that they can strike at any time causing devastation. Not only to our own lives, but also those of our loved ones. Blow Abbott Legal offers affordable and efficient legal services that focus on the key legal decisions that affect your life. Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Probate, and Inheritance Tax planning.
It may seem unusual for an accountancy firm to have a legal department. However, we find that there are great benefits of having access to experts in both the accountancy, financial services and legal fields. We strongly believe that we benefit from being able to see the whole picture across all areas, such as inheritance tax.
Inheritance Tax means your loved ones may face paying 40% to HMRC on the value of what you have left them. Not only can we handle any Inheritance Tax liability as part of the probate process, we can also advise on ways of planning to reduce liability before the tax becomes an issue in later life, or after death.

Everyone over the age of 18 should have a Will. If you have children under 18, this becomes even more important as it is only through a Will that you can decide who would look after them should the worst happen.
Wills don’t need to be complex and are often much easier to set up than people may think.
Following the death of a loved one, dealing with the practicalities can often be time consuming and emotionally draining. At a time when you and your family are grieving and need support with what the next steps should be. Our probate experts work with family members and/or executors to ensure the estate is wound up efficiently and thoroughly, but with sensitivity.
