Cryptoassets in Estate Planning & Administration - A Live Guide for Private Client Practitioners
Estate planning with digital assets generally involves being able to identify them and to have an understanding about their administration.
These hurdles are even more pronounced with cryptoassets.
It is necessary to understand the fundamentals of how they are transmitted and their proprietary nature, particularly with the operations of smart contracts and modern institutions like decentralised autonomous organisations.
During this new virtual classroom seminar, you will discover HMRC’s approach to transactions involving cryptoassets.
You will also learn about the process of identifying the assets in a crypto estate and how to plan for them, using trusts and wills. In addition, you will acquire an understanding of the basics of crypto investment, including the new decentralised finance initiatives.
