Estate Planning

Despite the common belief that estate planning ends with writing a will, it is actually a far more dynamic and extensive tool that extends beyond just the proper disposal of your assets. Before you write your last will and testament, a lawyer and trust attorney should be consulted. However, this step is just the beginning. CBSA can help you achieve your financial goals and objectives, with a holistic approach that includes tax, business and medical planning. Our experts can advise you about estate planning and an arrangement suited to you – whether it’s an inheritance from parents or family inheritance.

Request a call and a CBSA partner contact with you in your own language. You will be provided with an overview of CBSA services and the steps involved in this process. Cost estimates can be provided in advance.

Once you have given the green light, CBSA members and partners will start liaising in order to find the best possible solution for you. Each partner brings its own expertise to the table and together they can plan the way forward and justify that approach.

CBSA will take care of the entire process while ensuring to you’re your involvement to the bare minimum. You will be in control at every stage, and if you wish, you can monitor the entire process to ensure CBSA clients receive sound and practical advice concerning their last wills and testaments.
