Wills and Tax Planning

It is important to ensure that your affairs are in order before you die to spare your family and friends any unnecessary difficulties and to make sure that you leave your estate to those you wish to benefit. If you die without a will, you risk disappointing those close to you or, at worst, leaving them in serious financial difficulties.

Our specialist wills, trusts and probate solicitors can guide you through the options that are available to you in preparing your will, sympathetically taking into consideration your personal circumstances and family set-up.

We provide a bespoke service to ensure that you have a will that reflects both your financial and family circumstances. In advance of our first meeting we send you our scale of charges and after discussing your requirements confirm the costs for the work to be undertaken in advance of any drafts being prepared so that you know from the outset what the total will be.

  • Our charge for a standard will is £295 +vat (two standard wills - for a couple is £495 +vat)
  • For a non-standard will that is likely to contain trust provisions, more complex arrangements or to deal with circumstances which are not straightforward our charge is from £495 +vat for one and £725 +vat for a couple
  • Complex tax-planning wills from £1250 +vat
  • Please ask for more information about wills with more complex asset protection or tax planning

Storage of wills and deeds

Wills made with us are stored securely free of charge.

However, if you did not use Thackray Williams to make your will, you can still benefit from our secure storage. For this service we charge a one-off fee of £30 +vat. Other document such as deeds can also be safely stored with us on the same terms.
