The Government has announced changes to the charges for Probate Court fees.
The changes to the Probate Court fees are due to be introduced in May of this year subject to Parliamentary approval being obtained.
It is planning to introduce the charges upon a sliding scale. We set out below the table of proposed fees:
|Value of Estate||Fee Required|
|0 – £50,000||Nil|
|£50,001 – £300,000||£300|
|£300,001 – £500,000||£1,000|
|£500,001 – £1,000,000||£4,000|
|£1,000,001 – £1,600,000||£8,000|
|£1,600,001 – £2,000,000||£12,000|
|£2,000,001 or more||£20,000|
