Private Client

Significant changes to Scottish Succession law are on the way with the enactment of the Succession (Scotland) Act 2016 (“the 2016 Act”) due to come fully into force on 1 November 2016. One area of reform relates to the effect of divorce on Wills.  Here, we summarise the changes and also examine other common succession issues arising for clients who have been married more than once.

The Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, or “SCIO”, is the newest form of charity structure in Scotland.  Five years on from its introduction, over 1,000 SCIOs have been established.  An increasing number of clients are choosing a SCIO rather than a charitable trust or company limited by guarantee.  Read on to find out more about the key features of SCIOs.
