Kings Court Trust supports your financial planning goals by working with you to ensure that the client’s intergenerational planning is carried out as specified.
By working with a specialist Estate Administration firm you are able to focus on your day job and provide your clients’ beneficiaries with peace of mind that their inheritance is being administered by experts.
What is estate administration?
Probate has become the term commonly associated with handling an individual’s estate after they’ve died but it is just one component of administering an estate. In fact, whilst every death requires estate administration only about half of all estates require probate. Estate administration is the process of sorting out a deceased person’s legal and tax affairs. Everything from bank accounts, belongings and property to debts, pensions and Inheritance Tax.
