Do you have a plan in place to take care of your assets and finances after your passing? Do you have a will to ensure your estate is distributed to the right beneficiaries? Do you have a Power of Attorney if something were to happen to you tomorrow? These are some of life’s important questions that we tend to push aside, to worry about another day. But what if another day never comes?
You want peace of mind, knowing that the work you have done to plan a financial future will be preserved when you are gone.
Estate planning is more than just worrying about your money. It seeks to ensure that your estate is passed on to your intended beneficiaries in a timely and tax-efficient way. How you structure your Estate Plan may have significant implications for the tax that your beneficiaries will pay on your assets, as well as how and when distributions can be made.
Take action on your Estate Planning.
Mapping out a tax-effective estate plan requires an in-depth analysis of your current financial, family, and work situation. A well-formed estate plan comprises various products and services, tailored to an individual’s needs and circumstances. Common products and services included in an estate plan usually include reviewing or creating a will, granting enduring power of attorney, selecting an executor, giving guardianship, considering a family trust, nominated beneficiaries for superannuation and insurance, and life insurance.
Centaur Financial Services helps you navigate through these important questions to ensure your legacy is smoothly passed on to those dearest to you once you’re gone. We will provide you with the necessary tools to ensure your estate plan includes a will, enduring power of attorney, nominated super beneficiaries, and if applicable, an executor, discretionary trust or testamentary trust.

Many think estate planning is something to worry about in your older years. But the true this, it’s never to early to start estate planning. No one knows when their time is up. No one knows when the expected will happen. We only have to look at 2020 to see that nothing in life is certain – you could be struck by a car tomorrow. Therefore, its best to start an estate plan as soon as you can; especially if you have wealth or a family.

As our lives change, so do our estate planning needs. In our younger years, a power of attorney may be the most important element to consider. As we get older and have a home and family, wills and trusts become more critical. As we accumulate wealth in our 40’s, attention moves to asset distribution, life insurance, and reviewing your will and power of attorney. Later in life, as we pass 50, its vital to ensure everything is in place and aligned with your current wishes.
Just like a will, as your life changes, your estate plan needs to be reviewed to ensure all your wishes are met. Contact Centaur Financial Services to update your estate plan today.

There is a big difference between a will and estate planning. A will is just one component of an estate plan. Estate planning comprises reviewing or creating a will, along with other important components, which include appointing a power of attorney, investing in life insurance, appointing legal guardians for children, appointing an estate executor/trustee, and electing superannuation beneficiaries.
