Including a gift in your Will is simple and straightforward through your financial or legal planner, and you do not need to rewrite an existing Will – it is easy and cost-effective to add a codicil.

Legacy gifts may include:
Residual gift: The residue (or a share of the residue) of your estate after all other gifts, tax and other costs have been honoured.
Specific or pecuniary gift: A fixed sum of money.
Bequest: A specified asset or object of value - for example, property, art, royalties or other income-generating rights.
