I am delighted that I have been asked to discuss some of the taxation issues that can arise on a death at the forthcoming Central Law Training conference.

I will be addressing:


Taxation Issues Arising on Death in the Context of Conveyancing

  • Duties of the Legal Personal Representative in relation to the following: Local Property Tax, Non-Principal Private Residence Charge, Household Charge, Certificates of Exemption or Discharge.
  • Dwelling-house Relief.
  • Capital Gains Tax and non-resident vendors: letters of no audit.


Taxation arising on a death Michelle McLoughlin

  • Capital Acquisitions Tax: Implications of the Finance Act, 2010: the abolition of clearance certificates and the secondary liability of the Legal Personal Representative. What are the Capital Acquisitions Tax implications for a LPR where there are non-resident beneficiaries in the estate? Is the Legal Personal Representative obliged to file a return (Form IT38S) if the non-resident beneficiary is within 80% of their group threshold? Are they obliged to discharge the tax and/or obtain a letter of no audit?
  • Capital Acquisitions Tax in the context of adverse possession applications where there are deaths on title since 1974; form CA12 as required by section 62(2) of the Capital Taxes Consolidation Act, 2003; is it possible to obtain a solicitor’s certificate in the prescribed form as an alternative to the Form CA12?

I look forward to meeting my colleagues at this event.
