NEW PROBATE FEES SCRAPPED !
You have possibly heard that Probate fees were due to increase on 1st May 2017 for all estates over £50,000. The table below sets out the new proposed fee structure. These have now been “shelved” for the time-being – given the current general election. They were not generally popular and therefore, hopefully, they will not be making a reappearance.
|Value of estate||Fee required|
|£2,000,001 or more||£20,000|
