Probate is the process of administering a deceased estate. This includes ascertaining assets and liabilities of the estate, paying debts or liabilities, and distributing the estate under the terms of the will.
As part of this, there could be Income Tax returns to deal with, as well as the Inheritance Tax return (IHT400 or IHT205). For larger estates this may also include the preparation of estate accounts.
If the following questions sound familiar, then our probate team are here to help.
We are able to assist with many aspects of probate with the exception of any contentious aspects of the probate, such as will disputes and claims from dependants left out of the will, as this work must be passed to a solicitor.
