Probate can be complex. There’s a lot to do and it has to be done properly.

For most, applying for probate and administering a complex Estate can be daunting. But, as accountants, licenced to provide probate services, our knowledge of accounting, inheritance tax (IHT) and Capital Gains tax guides and supports you throughout.

Once we’ve checked the Will, we will value the Estate, check the IHT position and if necessary, apply for the Grant of Probate. On receipt, we will gather assets, pay debts, finalise Estate tax position , distribute remaining assets to beneficiaries and prepare the Estate accounts.

If we’ve worked together already, we will have first hand knowledge of the Estate, but you don’t have to have been a client. We will help you to gather all the required details, apply for probate if needed, and administer the Estate.

Once the assets are distributed, we will make sure the future tax implications of receiving them are understood by the recipients.
