Increase in probate fees an abuse of MoJ powers says ICAEW

Thursday 22 November 2018, Plans by the UK Ministry of Justice (MoJ) to drastically raise the fees paid by families to wind up the estate of someone who has died are an abuse of constitutional powers according to ICAEW.

13 November 2018, ICAEW is once again reminding employers that they can spread the Christmas joy this year – thanks to the Christmas party tax break.

However, when it comes to gifts for staff, only presents which are deemed ‘trivial’ are exempt from tax.
