About Our Site

EstatesOrTrusts was formed to offer a unique reference point on understanding trusts and estates.

Estate and trust law is a complicated area. Trusts are shrouded in mystery for many, while inheritance and estate issues are often misunderstood.

The fact is that most of us will have to deal with these issues at some point in our lives. Whether you are sorting through the estate of a deceased relative or setting up a trust for tax purposes, you will have to understand this area of the law.

EstatesOrTrusts provides a comprehensive resource for information to help you deal with trust and estate issues. Our articles, which are written and compiled by experts in the field, cover everything from probate and estate valuation through to offshore trusts. You will also find information on the wide range of trust types available to you, and detailed guides explaining how to set them up. Our section on trust tax also provides all-important ideas for minimising your tax bill.

EstatesOrTrusts is designed to achieve just this. Remember, though, that our content does not constitute advice. After delving into EstatesOrTrusts, make sure you seek professional guidance to help you make the best possible decision in your circumstances.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

EstatesOrTrusts was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding EstatesOrTrusts and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
