Probate Services

Back To Tax for Individuals


Probate can be a very complex and time-consuming procedure, and coming as it does at a very distressing time, it makes sense to entrust the work to a specialist and devote your energies to the emotional needs of the family.

Harwood Hutton is licensed to provide probate and estate administration services. We make sure:

  • All relevant taxes are collected within the HMRC deadline
  • Money owing to creditors is paid
  • Debts owed to the deceased are collected; and
  • The remaining assets from the estate are distributed to the relevant beneficiaries.


Competitive pricing
Our approach to costs is very straightforward and very flexible. It is also potentially a lot more competitive than those probate practitioners that charge a percentage based on the value of an estate rather than on actual time spent on the matter.


Helping to keep your tax liability to a minimum
As chartered accountants you can be confident we have the specialist knowledge required to handle the tax affairs of the deceased. Not only can we steer you through the intricacies of inheritance tax, income tax and capital taxes but our experience may also help you and the beneficiaries to minimise the amount of tax that needs to be paid from the estate.

Client Testimonials
  • I always get quick, clear and definitive responses from the Harwood Hutton tax team – commercial answers to commercial issues.

    Robin Berry – Morgan Management
  • Right from the outset Harwood Hutton gave us direction and great advice – and that advice has evolved over the years as we’ve grown. We’re both medium-sized companies providing a bespoke service – one furniture, one accountancy – and the relationship works.

    Andy McCarron, McCarron and Co
  • I’m deeply impressed with Harwood Hutton’s extensive knowledge of tax arrangements for residential and commercial property landlords.

    Qadeer Ahmed, MD, ABA Finance
  • They really took their time to understand what was important to us and our business and the expertise we required. Whoever we speak to at HH, we get the same fantastic response and technical input. It’s a real partnership.

    Edward Finch, group MD, MRIB insurance brokers
  • I have worked with the directors at Harwood Hutton on a number of mutual client matters over many years. The reassurance of their clear, commercial and focussed advice is one of the main reasons I regard this as one of my most valuable professional relationships.

    Frank Wessely, Partner, Quantuma LLP
  • Harwood Hutton never seem to rest on their laurels. They are always seeking out new avenues and ways to improve their offering. A very forward-thinking company with staff who are always well briefed and who approach each task with drive.

    Karl Austen, MD, Surefoot Communications
  • We have engaged Harwood Hutton in several areas of structuring, including VAT issues, decoupling an SPV from a group structure and HMRC clearance for a transaction. The team have exceeded all expectations by being proactive, measured and very thorough.

    Adam Fawsitt, Director, FHT Limited
  • We moved to Harwood Hutton as they delivered a succinct and professional proposal. If anything, we have been more impressed post-move. They are a fantastic company to work with. They do truly differentiate. They have the skills and capabilities of a mega firm but with a personal service.
