FIXED FEE PROBATE
complete service - IHT to Pay
If the deceased's estate has Inheritance Tax to pay we charge you a fixed fee of £2,500+VAT to complete all estate work from start to finish.
So what do you get for £2,500+VAT? You save time and family disputes and get a complete service, with Probate applied for, HMRC forms accurately completed, funds realised and beneficiaries paid. You get accurate calculations of IHT due, reliefs available and exemptions used.
All fees and costs are fully explained before you ask us to start, there are no hidden charges.
A typical estate with IHT to pay might have the following costs:
Our fee- £2,500+VAT
IHT Due - Varies
Probate Registry Fee (all estates over £5,000) - £273
Total cost £3,273 + IHT Due
DON'T FORGET TO COMPARE WHAT YOU'RE PAYING FOR!
We cannot use our '30 days to Probate' model where there is Inheritance Tax to pay as we have to wait for HMRC to give clearance. That said we work with HMRC to complete the process as quickly as possible, whilst always ensuring you pay the minimum amount in tax.
If you are comparing fees ensure you know what you're getting for your money. Our service is a 'start to finish' one, you drop a box of papers at our office, or we collect them from you, and then do everything for you.
See'3 Stage Probate' for information on what we do, and what others may do.
Other firms might refer to a Probate service which is just the 'middle' part of a three step process. We charge one fixed fee for all three parts.
