DEATH AND TAXES

“…in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes

Benjamin Franklin, in 1789

Have you considered seeing a professional regarding your Estate Planning?

Estate Duty is levied at 20% on all property in your estate over the cumulative value of R 3 500 000.00. Unfortunately an estate is not only subject to Estate Duty, but also Capital Gains Tax on certain assets. This could have a negative effect on the liquidity of your estate.

Proper Estate Planning, done timeously, can limit the exposure of your estate to the legal minimum.

At Delport van den Berg Estate & Trust Services, we offer holistic Estate Planning solutions to ensure that your Assets are transferred to your loved ones in a stable and tax effective manner, thereby guarding your Legacy.
