Probate – Testate & Intestate

Probate involves the administration of estate of the person who has passed away through the making of an application to the Probate Office and the carrying out of the wishes as written in their Will. If someone dies intestate, i.e. without a valid/existing Will in place, the rules of intestacy govern the administration of the deceased’s estate.

George V. Maloney & Co. Solicitors can assist and advise you with your organisation of your affairs, as well as assisting executors in the administration of estates, and estate disputes.

Inheritance tax:

This is an Irish tax that is charged on the beneficiary (the recipient) of gifts or inheritance. Due to the high level of Irish inheritance tax rates (Capital Acquisition Tax (CAT)), it is imperative that a professional that has experience dealing with probate and tax law in Ireland assists you with planning the potential tax effects and tax reliefs available in connection with your Will, or assists you with the tax implications as a beneficiary. George V. Maloney & Co. Solicitors are a leading law firm in the area of Probate Law, established over a century ago, with a vast knowledge in the area. Contact us today to discuss how we can help you, if a tax free threshold applies to you or whether any Capital Acquisition Tax (CAT) is payable by you at all on your gift/inheritance.
