Details

Check if you can use the online service as part of the probate process if the deceased’s estate is an ‘excepted estate’ and the person that died was a permanent resident of England, Wales or Northern Ireland. An ‘excepted estate’ is usually an estate that doesn’t pay Inheritance Tax. If you can’t use the service, use the form IHT205.

Get the right software if you choose to use the form

The form is interactive (one that you fill in on screen) and you must use Adobe Reader to complete it. Downloading Adobe Reader is free. Download the latest version of Adobe Reader.
