Growing older these days seems to bring more problems than ever before. An elderly person may well have savings rather than a mortgage, shares and investments, pension funds and equity in their home. All this needs to be looked after in the most tax efficient way possible. Impartial advice is even more important for example if a loan is needed for such items as home improvements or a new car.
