Expat Wills

Expat Wills – As an expat, what do you need to know?
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to the problem of international estates and expat wills, as each individual’s circumstances are unique and will require bespoke solutions. Probate law varies greatly from country to country. It is likely that your assets will be frozen on your death, but any debts will continue to accumulate, which can leave loved ones in difficult circumstances. That is why we would always advise seeking expert legal guidance from our network of legal professionals. After all, you work for a lifetime to amass your estate, so it makes sense to take the time to ensure as much of your legacy as possible is passed on to the people you wish to benefit from it. Here at Wills Worldwide, we have the relevant expertise as well as experience of the issues to consider when making a will and particularly those relevant to expats caught between residency and domicile in more than one jurisdiction. Wherever you are in Asia, our UK certified adviser and partners can help you make the most of the tools available to you to minimise your IHT liability and leave a lasting legacy for your loved ones. Please contact us to find out more.… read more
