Don’t leave it too late to plan for your old age!
Old age comes to us all, so it’s far better to be prepared for it so that no unwelcome surprises arise after we reach retirement. This is why Sussex and Gatwick-based chartered accountants MHA Carpenter Box and Worthing-based solicitors Bennett Griffin are joining the charity Guild Care in Worthing to hold an event to help you plan for later life.
With planning comes the peace of mind knowing that you will be cared for in later life, that your finances are in order and that your estate will be distributed to your loved ones in the way that you would want.
The Financial Planning for Later Life event will cover a wide range of topics from some of the legal issues surrounding Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney, as well as financial implications such as Inheritance Tax and funding for care fees.
Speakers at the event will include Helen Tidball from Guild Care, who will introduce and provide some background to the charity, which runs three care homes and over 30 community services in Worthing. Tania Clapham, Partner at Bennett Griffin, will discuss Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney, while Karen Thomas, Associate at MHA Carpenter Box, will provide details on Inheritance Tax. Gill Lynes, Financial Planning Manager with MHA Carpenter Box Wealth Management, will then conclude with an overview of care fees planning, so there should be something for everyone!
Attendees will have the opportunity to raise questions at the end of the event which will be held on Tuesday 16 October, between 6pm and 8pm at Guild Care, Methold House, North Street, Worthing.

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
