Get Your Affairs in Order

The title of this blog piece has nothing to do with Tiger Woods, Wayne Rooney or any of their ilk. I came across this checklist on Chartered Accountant Tommy McGibney's excellent tax blog.

Like most good ideas, it's a simple one. While most of you have already made a Will (haven't you?), this is a simple checklist detailing where various important documents, bank accounts, life assurance policies are held and who the relevant contacts are.

I'd strongly urge everyone to take an hour or two to complete this, make a few copies and let a few trusted people know where your checklist is kept. In the event of your death, it could make matters so much easier for those you leave behind.
