ESTATE PLANNING

Are you aware of the impact Capital Gains Tax will have on your estate?

Very few people have more than a vague idea of the actual size of their estate. As the years pass, they build up their assets and provide for their families, but no proper arrangements are made to see that the right people benefit and that the family does not suffer financially, when something happens.

My estate planning analysis addresses the cumulative effect of all expenses due on your death.

DREAD DISEASE INSURANCE

Dread disease protects your lifestyle, retirement savings and investment portfolio by providing you with the financial cushion you need to fully recover. The payment of a tax-free lump sum while you are recovering, will most certainly help the healing process.

And it pays on diagnosis – no waiting period – providing immediate income before your disability benefits start.

Generally, the critical illnesses covered are:

  1. Stroke
  2. Cancer
  3. Heart Attack
  4. Coronary Artery Disease requiring surgery
  5. Other serious coronary artery diseases

DISABILITY

There is no doubt that your greatest assets is your ability to work and earn an income. Suffering a long-term sickness or injury will prevent you earning an income, crippling you and your loved ones financially and making your loved ones depend on others.

Disability can happen at any time. It is not selective.

Surely it makes sense to secure your income earning potential? Income protection provides a monthly income for when you are disabled for a short or long period.

Disability insurance is the only way to immediately have access to a large tax-free lump sum if you suffer a life changing event.

LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES

If you have any sort of financial commitment, like a home bond or a vehicle lease, you may require life cover. If you don’t, on your death, you leave your family with debts, not assets.

Life insurance is the only way to make sure that when you die, your loved ones will immediately be financially secure. Why? Because it will pay them a lump sum of money.

Estate duty might also become applicable on your death.

Estate duty is payable on the estate of every person who dies and whose net estate is in excess of R3, 5 million. It is charged and collected at a rate of 20%. It is levied on property of residents and South African property of non-residents, less allowable deductions.

How one is married influences the calculation. All property of the deceased will be brought into account. This includes fixed property, moveable property such as motor vehicles, furniture, artwork, investments (such as stock/shares), loan accounts, cash in the bank, unpaid salaries and leave pay.

The proceeds of any life assurances, whether payable to the estate or third parties also need to be identified, as well as the surrender values of any life policy owned by the deceased on the life of someone else.

From this asset total, all legitimate claims against the estate will be deducted, for example outstanding bonds, credit cards, overdrafts, last illness expenses, household expenses, funeral costs and any other suchlike costs, to arrive at the net estate.

We will help you decide what policy type best suite your needs.

DEFINED-CONTRIBUTION CORPORATE PENSION PLAN

These plans do not guarantee a certain benefit. Fixed contributions are paid into an individual account by employers and employees. The contributions are then invested and the returns on the investment are credited into the individual’s account. The pay-out from this rests solely on the success of the investments made.

On retirement, the member’s account is used to provide retirement benefits, usually through an annuity, which then provides a regular income. These plans have become widespread all over the world and are now the dominant form of plan in the private sector.

DEFINED BENEFIT CORPORATE PENSION PLAN

The retirement benefits of employees are based on a formula that calculates the contributions needed to meet the defined benefit, taking into consideration the duration of employment, salary history, the employee’s life expectancy and normal retirement age, possible changes to interest rates, annual retirement benefit amount and the potential for employee turnover.

When participating in this plan, the employer promises to pay employees a specific benefit for life, beginning at retirement. The benefit is calculated in advance, using a formula based on age, earnings and years of service. The employer is responsible for making all decisions regarding the fund.

CORPORATE PENSION SCHEMES

A corporate pension plan is a formal arrangement between the company and its employees that provides funding for the employees’ retirement. It is a retirement plan that requires the employer to make contributions into a pool of funds set aside for the employee’s future benefit. The pool of funds is invested on the employee’s behalf and the earnings on the investments, generate income to the employee upon his/her retirement.

Two of the most common corporate pension plans are the defined-benefit and the defined-contribution plans.

Decide today, where you would like to be tomorrow.

Managing money during retirement is very different to managing money before retirement.

Remember, if you do not save for your retirement, no one else will do it for you.
