Your legacy to The Guildford Rotary Eye Project
-- a gift of a fixed sum of money in your Will is called a pecuniary bequest. The value of pecuniary legacies will decrease over time, as the cost of living increases.
-- a gift of the remainder of the estate after all other bequests have been made and debts cleared is called a residuary bequest.
A gift of specific items such as personal possessions, land, buildings or specified investments such as shares or the contents of a bank account.
Make a Will
You can include The Guildford Rotary Eye Project in an existing Will by making a Codicil. This is a simple document which makes amendments to existing Wills. A solicitor will be able to provide you with a codicil document which will need to be signed by two independent witnesses.
Tax planning is becoming more important as the value of family homes increases. An increasing number of estates fall within the Inheritance Tax regulations and a lack of planning can significantly increase estate tax liabilities.
