SPEAKER

Chris Bagley of the Co-op Bank gave an interesting talk on "Tax Care and Toy Boys" covering such varied items as Inheritance Tax, Care Home payments, Lasting Power of Attorney, putting one's House in Trust as opposed to Leaving Property to Family.
The latter could mean that if the surviving partner remarries then subsequently divorces their new spouse would be entitled to half of this estate.
It was also pointed out that any Funeral Plans should cover all dispersments and that one should always check what would happen to any monies paid should a provider go bust.
Questions were invited from the floor and after these were dealt with a vote of thanks was given by our Chairman.
