Get in touch

If you are planning your estate, your main priority will be making sure your family is looked after. You won’t want them having to ask questions like “How to file a tax return for a deceased person?” so it is important you work with an experienced estate planning solicitor to help you prepare.

There are three main areas of tax which your loved one may need to deal with after your death. These are:

  • Inheritance tax.
  • Income tax.
  • Capital Gains Tax.

Income tax in Scotland

Income tax is chargeable on your salary or income from self-employment, pensions, interest on savings, income from shares, rental income and income from trusts.

If you earn any of these, your loved ones may need to complete an HMRC deceased tax return.

Seeking Legal Support for Confirmation After Tax

The confirmation process is required before any money or assets belonging to the deceased person can be released. Applying for confirmation in Scotland is fairly straightforward and is a process the Bereavement team at Jones Whyte are able to help you with.

To obtain confirmation in Scotland, an application should be lodged with the Sheriff’s Court.

The court will then give you a legal document which gives the executor authority to manage the deceased individual’s money and assets.
