Meet Mark.

Mark is one of only 30% of South Africans who got his will in place in order to protect his family if he’s no longer around.

However...

Mark never thought about the fees his executor & trustees will charge, leaving his estate and beneficiaries with much less than he hoped for.

The Solution!

For as little as R 135 per month, our Legacy Protection Plan™ solves this and many other problems, should you pass away.

Don't be like Mark and leave problems when you want to leave a legacy!

With the Legacy Protection Plan™

Immediate Liquidity™

Estate Overheads Protector™

Estate Gap Cover™

Immediate Liquidity™

When you pass away, your family could have limited access to money. Ensure there is money available to cater for things such as funeral expenses, travel arrangements, groceries and other immediate expenses. This benefit pays within 48 hours giving rapid relief to your loved ones.

Estate Overheads Protector™

Estates take time to wrap up and there are costs that can become an additional burden to your family. This benefit is available in cash to the executor of the Estate, to help them pay for the costs relating to the Estate, such as Master's fees, correspondence fees, property clearance and advertising costs.

Estate Gap Cover™

If both you and your spouse should pass away, it can be a financial shock to your beneficiaries. It’s often too expensive to cover the costs associated with both spouses passing away simultaneously. Through this benefit, you can provide for inheritance taxes and other additional legal costs as well as the loss of monthly income.

Frequently asked questions

Do you have to pay tax on inherited property?

In general, when an individual passes away and bequeaths their entire estate to their surviving spouse, no Capital Gains Tax is payable. If the surviving spouse is inheriting the immovable property (house) in the estate, then the estate will also not be levied with Capital Gains Tax. However, if anyone else other than the surviving spouse inherits from the estate then Capital Gains Tax, Estate Duty and Donations Tax (if applicable for donations) will be levied.

How do I ensure the estate is divided according to Islamic law?

In South Africa, you could use the Capital Legacy Tazkiya™ service to draw up your Islamic will to ensure that it is Shari’ah compliant, legally binding and does not contradict South African law.


Can a non-Muslim relative inherit? For example, a non-Muslim wife?

No, but they can be allocated a bequest in an Islamic will, provided that the sum of all bequests does not exceed one-third of the estate. Alternatively, they can be nominated as beneficiaries of the MyCover™ extender on the Tazkiya™ Family Takaful.


How do I get executorship?

Application for the Letter of Executorship/Authority needs to be made at the Master of the High Court in the province where the deceased lived during the 12 months preceding his/her death. Should the estate value be more than R 250 000 the Master of the High Court will insist that a Professional Body such as a bank or a trust company (known as fiduciary service providers) assist with the administration as there are certain requirements that need to be met to finalise the estate.


Is life insurance part of a deceased estate?

No, it is only part of an estate if the policy is not left to a beneficiary. Often, people do not list everything they own in their wills. Life insurance policies are subject to estate taxes whether the death benefit passes to the estate or the beneficiary.


Can you have joint executors of a will?

Not to brag, but we're kinda good at what we do.

Don't take our word for it though...

The painful process of winding up my late dad’s estate has been made efficient and pleasant. I recommend Capital Legacy based on their representation, vast competencies, follow-through abilities and general customer service. The staff members are empathetic and efficient, taking a personal interest in the client.
One of the customer care agents contacted me to remedy a frustration that I had been experiencing. Not only was he professional and prompt, but he was so charming and friendly that I ended the call laughing and having a better day. Thanks!
Thank you so much for your excellent service. I truly appreciate your assistance. It’s such a pleasure to receive good service, especially this time of the year.It was a blessing to have someone calling me and extending a friendly, patient and helping hand.

May you be blessed for your kind demeanor.
I was assisted by a customer care agent at Capital Legacy. He was extremely helpful and super friendly. The best service I’ve received in years. He was understanding and helped me with my problem, which put a smile on my face.

Extremely professional! Thank you for being amazing.
Our consultation took place at the office in JHB. We were warmly welcomed at reception and offered refreshments, and then ushered to the boardroom. We were assisted by Capital Legacy staff. Their service was excellent. Well done!
