Estate or Trust Administration

Estate or Trust Administration

A simple estate or trust may be administered by the Executor or Trustee without legal assistance. For more complex estates or trusts or if an Executor or Trustee is too busy to administer a simple estate or trust, we provide estate and trust administration services and advice, as little or as much as is needed. We explain which income tax and trust returns need to be filed and advise the Executor of the filing deadlines. We can arrange for estate and trust income tax returns to be completed and filed.
