Personal Representatives 2nd Edition
A Guide for Tax Practitioners
A practical guide for all personal representatives and others involved with the tax issues arising during the administration of a deceased person’s estate.
Written mainly for the tax practitioner, it is also accessible to the non-tax professional, including in particular personal representatives who are trying to understand some of the tax intricacies associated with estate administration.
The book takes a practical approach to the topic, including many worked examples. It considers CGT, IHT and income tax, both from the position of PRs, (from death to the end of the administration period), and from the position of beneficiaries (specific, general or residuary).
It contains a detailed examination of formalities necessary for a valid will under which PRs are appointed. The text is peppered with tax planning suggestions throughout, and includes extensive references to legislation, case law and HMRC guidance.
