When somebody dies it is difficult to know where to turn when considering the probate application and the administration of the estate.

Traditionally, you may have only ever considered using a solicitor for this type of engagement but with recent changes in legislation this is no longer necessary. We are pleased to inform you that our accountancy practice is now licensed to carry out probate services.

But why use us? We are a well established firm who have an accumulation of in-depth knowledge in relation to family, business and personal taxation matters. We offer a service that is personalised to meet your individual needs and our fees are raised on a bespoke basis, rather than on a percentage or set fee account.

Our trained probate team includes a number of partners and staff with many years experience who can provide help at this challenging time. We can provide a sensitive, efficient and practical service including:

  • Applying to the Probate Registry
  • Valuing the assets
  • Completing the relevant tax forms
  • Obtaining the Grant of Representation
  • Corresponding with H.M. Revenue & Customs in relation to Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax
  • Transferring or distributing the assets and settling estate liabilities
  • Winding up the estate
  • Setting up any Trusts
  • Preparing estate accounts

Your needs will be unique, and we believe that this is a time for a professional service. Contact one of our probate team to find out how we can help you.
