    Putting your affairs in order: from PETs to LPAs

    Nobody likes to think about life coming to an end. But organising your affairs can only be of benefit to you and your family. Karen Bacon outlines what to consider.

    There comes a time in each of our lives when we begin to think about putting our affairs in order. More often than not, this is when we are approaching retirement, or experiencing ill health.

    Unappealing as the prospect may be, it’s never too early to start the process. And once it’s done, you will need to keep everything under review.

    So, what do you need to consider, and how (and when) should you go about it?

    Make a will: providing for your family

    Inheritance tax planning: PETs

    Retirement planning: plan in advance

    Care fees planning: consider wills trusts

    Funeral planning: talk about your wishes

    Lasting power of attorney: who will take care of your affairs if you can’t?
