We are delighted to be taking part in the Will Aid charity scheme again this year and are now taking bookings for appointments in November.
Macnabs has taken part in Will Aid for 9 years. The Will Aid scheme is held annually in November and lawyers generously give up their time for free to write Wills for local people, in exchange for a donation to the charity. Macnabs has raised an impressive total of £54,361 to date making us one of he highest donating firms in Scotland.
When a loved one loses the ability to make their own decisions, and is unable to sign a Power of Attorney, the answer may be to apply to the Court for a Guardianship Order.
A Guardianship Order allows someone to make ongoing decisions on behalf of an adult with incapacity, such as paying bills, dealing with bank accounts, and making decisions about care and personal welfare matters.
Many employers and employees have been dependent upon the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, commonly known as “the Furlough Scheme” since it began in April this year.
With the Furlough Scheme ending on 31st October and longer term Covid-19 restrictions being announced by both the UK and Scottish Governments, employers and employees are anxious to understand the new Job Support Scheme announced by the UK Government which begins on 1st November and will run for six months.
As the government increases measures to tackle the coronavirus infection rate, the Scottish Government has updated its guidance on home moves accordingly. It has been a challenging time this year for those looking to move house, however the latest announcement clarifies that all home moves will continue to be permitted, provided they can be carried out safely.
