EFIS 26, July 2007 : Probate

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

In his Budget statement, the Chancellor of the Exchequer confirmed that the threshold at which Inheritance Tax becomes payable would be increased as part of the Finance Bill.

We have therefore updated the PROPEP form to refer to the new Inheritance Tax threshold of Ł300,000 in respect of deaths which occurred on or after 6th April 2007.

We recommend that Probate practitioners should only use PROPEP2007 in conjunction with Probate forms PRO4, PRO4B, PRO5, PRO8, PRO9, PRO11, PRO12, PRO13, PRO14 and PRO16 on or after 1st August when the Finance Bill is enacted and delete the existing PROPEP2006 form.

This EFIS requires deletions. For deletion instructions, click here
