Accountants need to know enough about wills and estate administration to be able to point their clients in the right direction when a client (or a member of a client’s family) loses capacity or dies. They also need to be able to forward plan to address the change in asset ownership and control that accompanies death loss of capacity.
This session is designed to give accountants and other tax advisers some tips to assist them when working with these issues.
