Putting money away in advance is the best way to lessen the financial burden on the family when it comes time for the funeral. Much like Kiwisaver, a funeral pre-payment plan saves small amounts into a fund on a regular basis. That means you’ll barely even notice, even though it makes a big difference in the long term. Get in touch with our team today to discuss pre-payment options.
No matter your budgeting requirements, we are able to guide you through the process of arranging a funeral that fits your needs. Whether you would like the funeral to be traditional, contemporary, or one of our set service options, we are dedicated to providing a service that is meaningful and personalised.
Settling the funeral account
In line with normal commercial practice, Rosetown Funeral Home requires you to provide full payment by a particular due date. Most funeral firms send their account directly to the family, with a copy to the solicitor if required. On most occasions, the person making the arrangements with the funeral director remains responsible for paying the invoice.
When a funeral is being arranged, Rosetown Funeral Home will incur a significant outlay on your behalf. This outlay covers expenses to all external service providers involved in the funeral service. Because of this, prompt payment of the account by the due date is very much appreciated. Rosetown Funeral Home will also require a deposit when taking instructions from you. Any outstanding accounts will be charged interest, and a service fee may also be required if the account is unpaid by the due date. When the settlement of an estate is delayed, families are encouraged to pay the account by this date, and recover the expenses from the estate.
