Probate fee update – the new “death tax” scrapped

April 24, 2017


Whatever your views on politics, the calling of the Election has meant that the proposed increase in the Probate Court fees has had to be scrapped by the Government.

There wasn’t time for the measures needed to implement this to go through Parliament before it is dissolved for the Election.  No mention is made of it being a postponement so it is hoped the Government, if re-elected, will take account of the objections previously raised against it and abandon the idea all together.

We will keep a look out for any developments or changes.
