Services we offer


Estate planning does not only include measures which come into effect at the death of the owner of the estate.



A Will is the most important document one will ever sign. Having an up-to-date Will means that the estate will be distributed according to the wishes of the client



The setting up of a trust often has its origin in the planning of one’s estate and is used as a financial vehicle, offering protection of assets against potential financial mishaps.


Administration of deceased estates

We have a well-established department that administers all of our deceased estates, making use of a software program called Legal Ease.


Drafting of fiduciary related business contract and agreements

We have legal experts who are skilled in drafting customised agreements as well as most other fiduciary related business agreements and contracts.

Tax advice

Crest Trust can help you keep to the straight and narrow when it comes to complying with fiduciary tax, as well as opening you up to the avenues of tax benefits related to declaring your fiduciary constituents.
