Education, Collaboration And Networking At Willwriting Academy’s Annual Conference

There is less than a month to go before the most anticipated conference in Wills and Estate Planning takes place! Do you have your ticket organised?

On Wednesday 20th and Thursday, 21st March, the Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW) and Institute of Scottish Professional Willwriters (ISPW) members will receive the priceless benefits only garnered from attending industry leading events like the IPW and ISPW’s Willwriting Academy Conference 2019.

In addition to the Annual General Meeting that will review the Institute’s successes of 2018 and emphasise the direction and vision for 2019, attendees will receive high quality content delivered by leaders in their field.

The line up is not to be missed!

A myriad of inheritance tax issues will be tackled by Michael Budden, renowned tax adviser and specialist who has trained and educated professionals for over a decade.

Michael Budden of Budden Professional Training Ltd, said: “I am delighted to be speaking at the IPW conference. I’ll be talking through commonplace tax issues that many people in the room may face with clients, discussing the possible solutions for advisers to consider and providing tips for handling certain tax topics. By the end of my session I hope that more people in the room will have the confidence to discuss the tax basics with clients, and how to point them in the right direction. I’m looking forward to the event and meeting delegates.”

Andrea Pierce, of Kings Court Trust, will look at the importance of Will preparation and the potential impact a Will can have on the administration of an estate if adequate preparation and due diligence are not carried out. Stephen Mayson, Honorary Professor of Law at University College London, will also scrutinise regulation involved in the process of writing a Will and consider if there are any improvements to the current system that could be made.

As probate fees change, price transparency and a range of other regulatory changes impact on the profession, Viv Williams of Symphony Legal, will explore the current sector and speculate on the changes that all Willwriters and Estate Planners should be preparing for.

With the Brexit clock ticking down to March 29th, Sally Dilks and Dennis Phillips of Buckles Solicitors, will consider Brexit and where the world of Wills and Estate Planning is heading amidst the chaos and political uncertainty.

Peter Burton, representing Taylor Rose TTKW Ltd/Philips Trust Corporation, will follow up on these sentiments by focusing on lifetime trusts.

Because training is a vital tool for any progressive organisation, the Institute is determined to ensure all members have the necessary experience and understanding of relevant issues to thrive in the year ahead. The talks will provide a clear understanding on the topics that will affect the work IPW and ISPW members carry out.

Additionally, the information accessed throughout the two days will provide a range of discussion points that can be expanded upon during the ample networking opportunities where attendees can meet like-minded people that are providing similar legal services; an invaluable way to chat and collaborate.
