For many people a Will, Personal Directive, and Power of Attorney will complete their estate planning; however, others may require more complex planning.

A successful business plan includes succession planning. Some individual's estates may attract significant tax on death, which can be delayed or avoided through proper estate planning. Successful strategies include the use of an unanimous shareholders' agreement for corporations, an estate freeze, the use of trusts -- including spousal trusts and alter ego trusts -- life insurance, marriage or cohabitation agreements, and other planning techniques.
