Such personal offices include the position of a director of a private corporation or trustee of a personal trust. When considering incapacity planning and personal offices, additional planning will be required.

If you have been managing a company or starting a company, you may be familiar with the term “corporate minute book”. However, it is easy to forget what a corporate minute book needs to contain and what its purpose is exactly.

To start, a corporate minute book contains all the essential organizational documents pertaining to an
incorporated company. In British Columbia, under the Business Corporations Act, every company must
have a corporate minute book. Under section 42 of the Act, there are specific requirements that must
be met for your corporate minute book to be in good standing.

Check out our blog post to learn more about your corporate minute book - averylawoffice.ca/2021/08/06/the-importance-of-the-corporate-minute-book/

An executor has 5 broad responsibilites:

- arranging the funeral
- probating the will and locating beneficiaries
- collecting and preserving estate assets
- addressing liabilities including debts & taxes
- claims against the estate, and distributing gifts to the beneficiaries.

Legal assistance may be both beneficial and necessary when navigating an executorship.

It is crucial that an executor determine the liabilities of the deceased. If an executor fails to pay or address liabilities, the executor could face personal liability. Liabilities may include funeral debt, taxes, mortgages, promissory notes, employee loans, and family law claims. An advertisement to notify creditors may assist in avoiding this risk. Chat with your legal professional about addressing estate liabilities.

Multiple wills is a planning technique used to minimize the probate fees payable upon death. With probate fees in BC of about 1.4% on the fair market value of estate assets, this can be an effective strategy for high net-worth individuals. The idea is to execute two wills, one for assets that may require probate (such as real property and accounts that will not be released by banks with probate) and one for assets that typically do not require probate (such as personal items, privately-held corporate shares and family loans). This is a probate fee minimization strategy worth considering. ...

A digital will is not a simple way to express your testamentary intentions without the cost of hiring a lawyer. A will must be in writing, signed by the will-maker and witnessed by at least 2 witnesses. While courts in BC have the power to admit an "informal will", proving a digital document as a will is difficult, stressful, time consuming and costly. A professionally prepared estate plan should be carefully considered. ...
