Work out what your family is in for
The costs associated with winding up one’s estate are numerous and unavoidable, whether you have a will or not. These expenses include capital gains tax, transfer fees, estate duty, Masters fees, funeral expenses and other miscellaneous costs that, added together, present a significant sum of money.
If there is enough liquidity, these costs are paid out of one's estate. If not, the deceased's family becomes responsible for those costs before the estate can be wound up and distributed to the heirs.
While creating your personalised will, SmartWill will also automatically calculate what it will cost your estate or family to wind up your estate. To do this our SmartCalculator uses the data you input to complete your will and works out the cost of winding up your estate.

"The process of updating my will was so overwhelming that I had snoozed the reminder on my to-do list since my my second child was born... and he is almost three. Then I found SmartWill.
The website is so intuitive and extremely simple. I found myself wondering whether it was too simplistic! The website guides you through an easy, step-by-step process that you can complete in your own time, in the comfort of your home. It takes an overwhelming task, and breaks it down into easy-to-answer questions. The cost is nominal, the quality is extraordinary. You don’t need to make an appointment with a lawyer, yet your will is reviewed by a lawyer. The whole process was so streamlined, I really can’t fault it. I strongly recommend that you just take the first step. The rest is easy." - Tanya Hanekom
"A will is always the lowest item on most people's daily priority list, but SmartWill helps make it as easy and seamless as possible. With the ability to dip in and out of the website when you have time to complete the details. With constant but not overbearing email reminders, and good advice from real people when you need it, the overall adds up to an excellent service for the price. Thanks SmartWill I can sleep a little easier now!" - Charles Edwards
