We aim to administer an Estate within 6-9 months. However the length of time depends on the complexity of the Estate. This in turn affects how long it takes to receive an inheritance. An Executor is required by regulation to submit a Liquidation & Distribution Account (L&D) to the Master of the High Court within 6 months of the date of the Letter of Executorship. Note, the total time to administer and Estate varies and could take years.
No, it is only part of an Estate if the policy is not left to the beneficiary. Often, people do not list everything they own in their Wills.
Life Insurance policies are subject to estate taxes whether the death benefit passes to the estate or the beneficiary.
Legally, Estate refers to everything you own. This includes properties, bank accounts, etc. It's a relatively simple definition, but it can become a bit more complicated when someone dies. This is where we can help.
Yes. Taxes will be payable either as part of the Estate if you sell it before the Estate is finalised, or as Capital Gains tax on your individual profile if you sell it after you have inherited it.
Each individual receives a rebate of R3,5 million on Estate Duty.
Therefore when an Estate is administered the individual's Estate is exempt from paying Estate Duty on the first R3,5 million of taxable value.
The administration of deceased Estates is generally the process of winding up the affairs of the deceased individual and this process is governed by the Administration of Estates Act, 66 of 1965 (as amended).
These duties and processes need to be fulfilled by a person who is appointed by the Master of the High Court and is refereed to as the Executor of the Estate.
No. The only way a Last Will and Testament becomes invalidated is when you revoke all previous Wills, in your current Will.
