What we do
Countrywide Tax & Trust Corporation Limited, based in the heart of Warwickshire, is a company which has been established for 16 years providing Legal Services, Probate, Professional Executor and Trustee Services, and is part of a group of companies providing advice in all aspects of Estate Planning and Asset Protection.
Holding the status of a Tax and Trust Corporation clearly illustrates that we are professionals. A Trust Corporation is a business organised specifically for entering into fiduciary relationships with individuals or organisations to act as an Executor, Guardian, or Trustee, in administration of custodial arrangements, estates and Trust funds. If we ceased trading, then other Trustees can be appointed in our place, if required, at that point. Being a Trust Corporation allows improved efficiency in both applying for Grants of Probate and Trust work, whilst giving the client extra protection due to the share capital held by the company.
