Wills for Business Owners

Our specialist Business Will lawyers are highly experienced and are on hand assist on the complexities of Will involving business assets. We will help guide you through all the necessary steps, so your business interests are protected.

There are numerous reasons why you should make a Will, for example, the appointment of executors, trustees and guardians and making sure that the right people inherit your estate.
However, as a business owner or someone who holds a business interest, it has a significant bearing on how you should write your Will and plan your estate.

A simple Will may not be effective or adequate, therefore, a more comprehensive Business Will might be required. Several reasons for this include:

  • For certain businesses, the business might cease trading upon death. This could cause a disastrous effect on the value of the business or at least its ability to trade in the short term
  • You might wish to appoint different people to administer your business to those for your personal estate
  • For inheritance tax efficiency

Our solicitors have many years of experience in advising business owners on issues such as Inheritance Tax, succession planning, and Wills.

Business Succession Planning

The main objectives for effective business succession planning within a Will include:

  • Addressing the personal requirements of owners
  • Ensuring a smooth transition for all – staff, family & investors

  • I’ve been dealing with Rosie for a few months now, after withdrawing from a property we continued to use her for the purchase of our new one. Rosie’s changed my perception of solicitors as she always acted in my best interests, always responds very promptly to any questions (regardless of how silly). I will certainly be recommending Rosie to friends and family. I’m sure we will have dealings in the future. Value for money is seconded to none. 
    Thanks again

  • We recently used DV Solicitors for the purchase of a commercial property. Mr Nasar Ali was our solicitor. It isn’t easy with any commercial mortgage especially Lloyds but as Mr Ali’s experience showed he was excellent from start to finish. Always keeping us up to date with what was happening. Probably have about 30+ emails from him lol. Great guy, excellent service, very professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Will use and definitely recommend. 👍

  • We have used Deo Volente for the first time rewriting our wills and making changes to property ownership. Ms Farida Ahmed talked us through the process by telephone in a friendly and helpful manner. Based on our experience I would use their service again and would recommend them.
