20: Philanthropy & Estate Planning for Business Owners with Priya Royal

Priya Royal is a charitable planning expert and is also the founder and Managing Attorney at Royal Law Firm PLLC a women-powered, international private client services firm. Priya joins Nana on Build Value By Choice to talk about her work in philanthropy and how you should be estate planning as a business owner. Find out how people from outside your network can benefit a community and the different services a tax attorney can provide when compared to an accountant.



Powerful Progress is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit bringing together industry leaders and professional experts in law, finance, and technology, to empower locked out communities with information, networks, entrepreneurship, and access to support wealth building across generations.
A great way to grow both individual and community skillsets is to give them access to mentors who belong to a more aspirational status than them. This way skills can be passed from those in more privileged communities to those who are unable to gain that information in other ways. It’s about creating accessibility between networks.
Tax = money. Every time money is the answer then you should start with a tax attorney. Getting your tax structure right will ensure you have access to credit and are covered for liabilities.
A tax advisor can give legal advice and accounting advice, whereas an accountant can give accounting advice, but not legal advice.
Philanthropic planning allows you to support the causes you care about while also being able to deduct certain costs from your taxes. The best philanthropic plans allow you to make a difference over a long sustained period of time. There are many types of trusts you should discuss with your financial advisors.
One of the biggest mistakes people make is believing that philanthropy is only for the wealthy.




‘Escape planning is about planning for life, not planning for when you die’

‘You feed the individual and grow the community’

‘It’s essentially a math game’
