What to expect and do next.
An Executor is appointed by you through your Will and they will be responsible for carrying out all of the duties in administering, managing your estate and distributing assets according to your wishes. The duties of an Executor can be complex, lengthy and emotionally demanding. Often a friend or relative is appointed without understanding all the legal responsibilities and associated risks.
Another option is to appoint a trustee company, such as TPT Wealth, to undertake the role. We can expertly and impartially co-ordinate all the legal, administrative, investment and tax requirements as a registered tax agent. We have a long and proven track record, providing advice and managing Wills and Estates since 1887.
Trusts are created in Wills for various reasons including:
A trustee is appointed to manage the Trust to achieve the objectives of the Trust and they can do this in different ways, depending on the nature and circumstances of the Trust.
For Trusts where the inheritance is to be held for a beneficiary who is a minor, the Trustee could pay an amount from the ongoing income of the Trust for the beneficiary’s living expenses, or towards their education. The Trustee may also pay Trust capital for housing, education or other expenses.
For Trusts established for Life Tenants, TPT Wealth balances the need for income to support the Life Tenant as well as the benefits of the remainder beneficiaries once the Life Tenant passes. TPT Wealth professionally manages these priorities via an annual investment review process which includes:
Upon the death of a life tenant, the assets of the Trust generally become available to the remaining beneficiaries.
Grief following the loss of a loved one, combined with the pressure of administering their estate, can be an overwhelming experience.
The Estate Administration process of collecting and managing a deceased person’s assets and liabilities according to their Will and/or the law can take up to 12 months. This can include arranging the funeral, identifying, collecting and protecting assets, closing bank accounts, paying debts and selling or transferring remaining assets of the Estate to beneficiaries.
It can be an emotional and difficult time for all involved, which is why it can be good to engage a professional executor to undertake the process.
