What Is Estate Planning?
Estate planning is the process of determining how the wealth of an individual is to be preserved, managed, and distributed among the beneficiaries; after the death of an individual. Estate Planning can be done through preparation of a Will and by creating structures like Private Family Trust for effective succession of wealth over generations.
What Is The Need For Will In Estate Planning?
It is important to note that Estate Planning is no longer just for the retirees or the wealthy elites; as it is impossible to predict how long will we live, as uncertainties are part of life and any illness or accident could happen to people of all ages. Estate Planning is therefore essential in creating a well-laid-out plan for the distribution of the individual’s assets in the event of his death. Similarly, a Private Family Trust for NRIs not only helps in the preservation and succession of wealth across generations but also as a tax planning tool in the country of residence of the NRI due to its legal structure.
Making a Will for NRIs having assets in India is of paramount importance as there have been lots of instances where various assets of the NRIs lie unclaimed and unattended due to a lack of knowledge about their presence or ownership to the legal heirs of the NRIs. A Will shall have a detailed mention of all the assets owned by the individual and it shall be very useful to track and claim the assets.
Similarly, a Private Family Trust for NRIs not only helps in preservation and succession of wealth across generations, but also as a tax planning tool in the country of residence of the NRI sue to its legal structure.
