Customer Question

A resident in Northern Ireland had a property in the South, left to her by her brother some years ago, has now died and her Will states property to be sold and divided between her 10 children. Can the executor of her will, who is one of her daughters, apply solely for Probate without each of the other nine having to apply for PPS nos. or complete forms? All but one live in the North.

1. It will be possible for probate to occur using existing UK numbers without applying for an Irish PPS No. But some form of EU Social Security number will have to be provided for probate to occur for these details are necessary for Irish Capital Acquisitions purposes. Each beneficiary (all 10 people) have to provide tax details for probate to accord with Irish law. It is not possible to do it with just the Executors tax and PPS number.
