Testate (i.e. deceased held a Will)
For non-United Kingdom worldwide applicants, it is not possible to re-seal a Grant of Probate in Jersey and, as such, a full application for a Jersey Grant of Probate must be made.
In these circumstances, you can appoint a member of Parslows Jersey probate team as an attorney executor to act on your behalf in Jersey (different rules apply if the deceased was domiciled in the United Kingdom, in which case the Jersey fast-track can be used).
Under Jersey law, unless a Jersey estate is worth less than £10,000 at the date of death, a Jersey Grant of Probate will be required to enable the personal representatives to administer the Jersey estate.
Are death duties, estate duty, inheritance tax or capital gains taxes payable by worldwide applicants 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)||Stamp duty|
|£00.00 – £10,000||Nil|
|£10,001 – £20,000||£100|
|£20,001 – £30,000||£150|
|£30,001 – £40,000||£200|
|£40,001 – £50,000||£250|
|£50,001 – £60,000||£300|
|£60,001 – £70,000||£350|
|£70,001 – £80,000||£400|
|£80,001 – £90,000||£450|
|£90,001 – £100,000||£500|
Thereafter, for each £10,000 (or part thereof) add £75.
The Probate Registrar will also levy a flat stamp duty fee on all applications. This is presently £80.
Please also note that the Royal Court Probate Department reserves the right to charge an additional sum of £75.00 for reviewing paperwork pursuant to an application.
