Estate administration is the process of sorting a person’s legal and tax affairs after they’ve passed away. When it comes to dealing with their assets, it usually comes down to property, shares, personal possessions, paying debts and paying inheritance tax & income tax.
There are many legalities involved when a person passes away. With the process of estate administration following a death in the family, it’s important to know what processes are involved and where you stand.
