What is a Probate Solicitor?

A probate solicitor is a legal professional who handles the administration of estates, wills, and related matters after someone’s death.

We assist in managing the legal and administrative aspects of the estate, including handling tax matters, preparing and submitting the required documentation to the Probate Office, ensuring compliance with Irish probate laws and regulations, and advising on inheritance tax implications.

What is the Probate Process?

At Mullins & Treacy LLP Solicitors, our probate solicitors help validate the deceased person’s will, interpret its provisions, guide the distribution of assets to beneficiaries, and address any disputes or challenges that may arise during the probate process.

Our role is essential in ensuring a smooth and efficient administration of the estate while protecting the interests of the deceased person’s beneficiaries and complying with legal obligations.

How can our probate solicitors help you with tax matters?

At Mullins & Treacy LLP Solicitors, our probate solicitors can provide advice and guidance in managing tax matters related to the administration of an estate. Here are some ways we can help:

  1. Tax Compliance: It is important that the administration process complies with all tax laws and regulations. Our probate solicitors will help gather the necessary financial information and assess tax liabilities. We will then prepare and submit the required tax returns to the appropriate authorities.
  2. Asset Valuation: Carrying out a valid and accurate assessment of the estate’s assets is essential for determining the potential tax liabilities. Our probate solicitors will often engage the services of professional valuers, or other experts, to accurately assess the value of different assets, such as property, investments, businesses, and personal possessions.
  3. Inheritance Tax Planning: Our probate solicitors will help our clients to understand the implications of inheritance tax. We will provide advice on strategies to minimise tax liabilities. Our solicitors can identify what exemptions may be applicable, e.g., specific reliefs and thresholds, and structure the estate in manner that is more tax efficient.
  4. Considerations Regarding Capital Gains Tax [CGT]: The selling or transferring of any assets during the estate administration process may incur Capital Gains Tax. Our probate solicitors can assess whether any capital gains tax is due, advise on exemptions and reliefs, and ensure compliance with reporting and payment obligations.
  5. Tax-efficient Asset Distribution: At Mullins & Treacy LLP Solicitors, our probate solicitors will give careful consideration to structuring the distribution of assets in a way that minimises tax liabilities. We consider factors such as individual beneficiaries’ tax positions, available exemptions and reliefs, and potential implications of transferring different types of assets.
  6. Adhering To Tax Law Changes: Tax laws and regulations are subject to change, and it is crucial to stay updated on any amendments that may affect estate administration and tax matters. Our probate solicitors keep abreast of tax law developments and advises our clients accordingly, ensuring their estate plans remain compliant and optimized for tax efficiency.

At Mullins & Treacy LLP Solicitors, our probate solicitors utilise their professional expertise and understanding of tax laws, to navigate the intricate and detailed tax landscape, providing guidance on tax implications throughout the estate administration process.

We help clients effectively manage tax matters, protect the estate’s assets, and optimize tax efficiency.
