Common Questions and Answers

How does a Missing Asset search save me time?2023-12-05T06:52:29+00:00

2-5% of shares and 10% of pensions are missed during the time of estate administration. Locating and reporting financial assets to HMRC now, will save you time and stress down the line.

What is the Estate Distribution Warranty and how will this save me money?2023-12-05T06:53:00+00:00

There are increased government pressures to repatriate ‘lost accounts’ and locate lost account holders. This can be occur 5 to 10 years later. If a Financial Asset Search has not been done, the solicitor/executor will need to reopen the case to distribute funds. This could incur further costs to the estate. The Estate Distribution Warranty will cover you for up to £10,000 for 10 years, in the event that additional searches are required. Also, the comprehensive search report that you receive can be used as evidence of due-diligence if ever required by HMRC of beneficiaries in the future.

Which companies do you contact?2023-12-05T06:53:25+00:00

All major Financial Institutions and 350 financial databases. This also includes a thorough search of Equiniti, Computershare and Link for Share Holdings.

How will this maximise the value of the estate?2023-12-05T06:54:01+00:00

As a personal representative or Executor, one of your responsibilities is to maximise the value of the estate. Doing a thorough financial asset search means that you can locate assets that would have been previously missed. For instance, a person could have a pension from a previous employer that is now worth tens of thousands. In maximising an estate, this will increase the estate value and entitlements due to residual beneficiaries including charities.

What happens if there is no will. Do I still need an Asset Search?2023-12-05T06:54:49+00:00

Yes. If there is no will, there is a higher likelihood that you may be missing assets. People can forget about things such as pensions and shares because they are for the ‘future’. Therefore, nobody knows about these assets unless a thorough Financial Asset Search is done.
