What stamp duty is payable on Jersey probate?
There are no death duties, estate duty, inheritance tax or capital gains tax in Jersey. Stamp duty is payable upon application for the Grant of Probate at a rate of 0.5% of the value of the assets at the date of death. This is rounded up to the nearest £10,000 on estates up to £100,000. For estates over the value of £100,000, there is a rate of £75 per each additional £10,000.
