  1. Lynne, What about using a Testamentary Insurance Trust. What are the specifics to that process and does that not allow for the Will to speak to the distribution of the insurance proceeds and also bypass the estate for probate purposes

  2. Google brought me to a page on your site where the comments are full - but wonder if you can help.
    I am an executor in UK and UK IHT has been paid but a beneficiary is in Canada - will Canada want to levy more tax?
