Man's best friend can be in his will

Animal lovers who have been putting their will on the long finger might now have just the incentive they need to plan their inheritance.

The Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (DSPCA) has developed a free online will service in association with the Irish law firm, Cosgrove Gaynard Solicitors. The service allows you to draft and register your will, in conjunction with Cosgrove Gaynard, who provide support.

In return for using the service, the DSPCA asks that you make a donation of €500 to the charity in your will.

As you can expect to pay about €500 to get a solicitor to draw up a straightforward will for you, this offer might even be enticing to those who are not fond of four-legged or other animals.

Wealthy individuals, or those with complex wills, may need to hire a tax advisor or legal expert before using this service. Remember, you can draw up your own will for free - without using this service.
