Probate is the process of administering the estate of a deceased, and involves distributing it to those who are entitled to inherit it after discharging all the estate liabilities and debts. Probate is a reserved legal activity and can only be carried out by an authorised individual, it is therefore imperative that you instruct a suitably qualified advisor to undertake this work for you.

How we can help?
As long as your probate is non contentious, we can help administer the estate. All probate work is undertaken by our Partner, Imran Anjum who is authorised by the ICAEW.
An accountant is best equipped in dealing with probate work as they are already familiar with undertaking negotiations across a range of taxes with HMRC, given their tax training and familiarity with numbers. Most solicitors already outsource most of their probate work to accountants and therefore do nothing more than obtain probate from the probate registry. Here at Dhikr accountants we can offer you a full in house service, none of our work is outsourced.
We work on a fixed fee basis which is agreed upfront, and is dependent on the complexity of work involved.
We bring together the technical expertise of accountancy with that of probate, both are equally important in successfully administrating an estate.
