This is an update of an earlier post, including information for the 2017/18 tax year.

NB: Since this guide was published, Teresa May has called a snap Election, whch has lead to the government dropping the planned changes to Probate Fees mentioned on p. 2. Probate fees will remain at £215 (or £155 if applying via a solicitor) until indicated otherwise.
