Probate Fast Track Application in Jersey for UK Residents | Jersey Probate lawyers | Parslows Jersey
For Probate Fast Track applications from the United Kingdom/ Isle of Man/ Guernsey where the deceased died testate, it is possible to use the Fast track probate method to obtain Jersey Grant of Probate.
A fast track application must be made through a Jersey agent such as Parslows Jersey.
Is Probate required?
Under Jersey law unless a Jersey estate is worth less than £10,000 at the date of death, a Jersey Grant of Probate is required to enable the personal representatives to administer the Jersey estate.
Are death duties, estate duty, inheritance tax or capital gains taxes payable in Jersey?
While there are no death duties, estate duty, inheritance tax or capital gains taxes in Jersey, stamp duty is payable.
|Value (at date of death)
|£00.00 – £10,000
|£10,001 – £20,000
|£20,001 – £30,000
|£30,001 – £40,000
