  • Accountants spend most of their professional lives planning for one event or another: their career, their families, their taxes, and, of course, other peoples’ taxes. However, few professionals have thoroughly considered the aspect of estate planning and its implications on taxation.

    This seminar provides a detailed review of important estate planning matters for practitioners who deal with owner-managers or clients with a high net worth. Specifically, you will gain enhanced estate planning skills, an introduction to important tax and estate planning concepts, useful tips, and an updated reference source. You will develop a working understanding of how to initiate and undertake effective estate planning for clients. The seminar emphasizes the maintenance of flexibility in the estate plan while managing estate planning risk.

    Topics Include:

    • Planning for deemed disposition at death
    • Planning and using trusts
    • Post-mortem planning
    • The use of life insurance in planning
    • A U.S. estate (and gift) tax review
    • The preparation and discussion of practical examples through a case study


    Upon completing this course, you be able to:

    • Identify significant issues relating to estate planning and the use of trusts
    • Analyze post-mortem planning alternatives in the context of fact-specific scenarios
    • Explain the use of life insurance in estate and post-mortem planning
    • Identify U.S. estate tax issues


    Although all accounting professionals will gain value from this seminar, this seminar caters to practitioners who want to identify and address estate planning needs for the owner-manager or individuals with high net worth.


    Prior to taking this seminar, participants should:

    • Possess experience in the area of domestic estate planning
    • Acquire a solid understanding of testamentary tax rules
    • Complete prerequisite seminars RIP – Estate and Testamentary Trust Returns and RIP – Terminal Filing
