Inheritance Tax - Budget Brings Little Comfort

Inheritance Tax (also known as Capital Acquisitions Tax or CAT) rates shot up and tax free thresholds fell radically in 2012.  Apart from slightly raising the Group A threshold (which applies mainly to gifts and inheritances from parents to children) the recent budget has done nothing to address the many difficulties which can commonly arise.




Just When You Think You Have It Sorted - Ademption and What It Might Do To You

You have made your Will and neatly left different parts of your property to different people. Exactly what the solicitor ordered. So that's it, you can forget about it now? Unfortunately not.



Probate & Why You Need It - A Simple Explanation

 Before the assets of a deceased person can be accessed or distributed it is necessary (except in very low value cases) to take out a grant of Probate (Will) or Administration (no Will).

Taking out the grant is the process whereby the Revenue Commissioners approve the estate for tax purposes and the Probate Office of the High Court certifies that the Will was validly made. Until then the Will is little more than a piece of paper.
