Tax Implications

Unless you’re a financial expert, dealing with tax in relation to a deceased person’s estate can be incredibly complicated. It is an added pressure during what is already an emotionally challenging and stressful time and can involve many different aspects of tax including:




  • Calculating initial inheritance tax liability and considering if it is possible to claim a partial refund.

  • Making capital gains tax calculations.

  • Liaising with the Revenue on the valuation of assets.

  • Investigating and advising whether there is any advantageous tax saving possibilities.

  • Completing income tax returns

  • Ascertaining whether any transferable nil rate band is available and if so calculating it.
