“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”
The Estate of a deceased must be reported with the Master of the High Court and a Letter of Executorship obtained.
The Master issues a Letters of Executorship, where after the Executor must take the following steps:
Once the Executor has accumelated all the information, a L&D Account must be drafted and lodged with the Master of the High Court, which sets out the following:
Capital Gains Tax is also calculated and is included in the Income Tax assessment.
L&D Account is advertised and must lie for inspection for a period of 21 days.
Once the L&D Account has lain for inspection and no objections were lodged, the assets are distributed to the heirs, which includes transfer of properties etc.
The final requirements are lodged with the Master in order to note the finalisation of the estate whereafter the Executor may request for the release of his duties.
