Probate & Estate Management

We are the only independent Cornish firm of Chartered Accountants and Chartered Tax Advisers that offers a complete Probate service. Led by Partner Nick Skerratt, one of only a handful of Chartered Accountants in Cornwall to be licensed to perform Probate work, our in-house Probate team offers a high level of expertise and a friendly service.  

We can manage the entire process on your behalf, ensuring that you are kept up-to-date with every step. As Chartered Tax Advisers, we can also seek to optimise the Inheritance Tax reliefs available and ensure that nothing is missed. Our combined level of in-house probate and tax expertise is unrivalled in Cornwall, ensuring that the Probate process goes as smoothly as possible for our clients. 

It is possible to vary the contents of the will of the deceased up to two years after their death, which may provide the opportunity to save significant amounts of Inheritance Tax. Our Tax Team can review the will and estate assets in order to ensure that the tax saving opportunities are not missed. 

We calculate our fees on a time basis of £195 plus VAT per hour, and also offer a fixed fee service. We do not calculate fees by reference to the value of the estate.

Our sister firm, RRL Wills Limited, provides Wills, Powers of Attorney and Deeds of Variation preparation services,  providing security, peace of mind and freedom of choice when dealing with complex situations. If you’re looking for security, peace of mind and freedom of choice, then contact RRL Wills here.
