Wills, Administration and Taxation Law and Practice applies a practical approach to a subject which forms a large part of the work of many solicitors. It deals comprehensively with tax considerations, the substantive law and also covers drafting, probate practice and procedure.

  • Provides invaluable guidance for both students studying the LPC or BVC and those new to practice
  • Uses precedents, examples of frequently used forms and worked examples to present a clear, practical picture of the operation of the law
  • Deals fully with the changes to CGT introduced in 2010/11 including the introduction of the 28% rate payable by personal representatives and trustees
  • Covers the implications of the 50% rate of income tax payable by many trusts
  • Includes a wealth of key case law, for example recent decisions on statutory and mutual wills
