Capital Gains Tax
If assets are sold at a higher value that the date of death value, this could give rise to a capital gains tax liability. There are special tax rates for estates, however it is possible to minimise this liability by appropriating assets to beneficiaries prior to sale. Professional advice should be sought before taking this step as you could inadvertently pass the tax liability to the beneficiary.
Since income from banks and building societies are now received gross, more and more estates are finding that they have an income tax liability to report to HMRC. This must be done it the tax liability is above £100.
Beneficiaries and Distributions
Beneficiaries will want to ensure that they are receiving their correct entitlement and will be entitled to see estate accounts setting out exactly how their entitlement has been calculated. You will also need to ensure that you can pay the legacies to them by checking that they are not bankrupt, failure to do so could make you personally liable to the trustee in bankruptcy for the funds that have been paid to the beneficiary.
