Hi Sam. Thank you for the reply. It will be very helpful. I guess that I will give HMRC the details after the tax year-end ?
Our dad died in January 2013 and because him and mum had a joint account at the building society, their will was not used. (They had a joint will leaving things to each other and then to my sister and I). The building society deleted his name from the account on seeing the death certificate.
Mum died a few weeks ago and the building society have paid direct to the funeral directors again and are sending the balance to my sister and I (about £1,000 each). So no solicitors have been involved at all !
Do you think that I (we) should get help to deal with the taxman regarding the CGT or should it be simple enough for us ?
Thanks very much for the answers Sam, I will let you know if I think of any more questions later.
