Our Deceased Estate Tax Services

Many people ask us is inheritance taxed in Australia? We understand the complexities of inheritance. That's why we offer wide array of services around deceased estates to help you in your individual situation.

Navigating Capital Gains Tax

Coleman Advisory can help with Capital Gains Tax (CGT) implications of death. Every situation is different and will carry different tax implications for capital gains tax on a deceased estate. For instance, if the deceased had owned any property or shares that had increased in value since they acquired them, then you have to pay capital gains tax on the sale of these assets. Coleman Advisory can help to work out the capital gains tax liability and advise on the best way to pay it and any deductions you are entitled to.

Superannuation Death Benefits

The superannuation death benefit can also be complex. If the deceased was a member of a superannuation fund, then the fund may be able to pay a super-death benefit to the beneficiary. However, there are many things to consider when receiving a super death benefit in a lump sum, such as tax and Centrelink implications. Coleman Advisory can help beneficiaries understand their rights and tax obligations and ensure that they receive the best tax payable possible.

Trustee Rates

Trustee rates are another important consideration for estate planning. When a person dies, their estate may have to become a trustee of one or more trusts. This involves appointing a trustee and setting up a trust deed. Coleman Advisory can provide advice on all aspects of trustee rates, including choosing an appropriate trustee and negotiating favourable terms.

Forward Planning

Do you want to leave your family with a stress-free inheritance? We have helped many people in various situations deal with and plan for their deceased estate. We do this to help you understand and set up the best structure for your circumstances. If you don't set up an estate plan your assets will be equally distributed amongst your immediate family. This can be problematic as the government will control assets for family members under age until they are 18. Without a proper structure and plan, you could leave your family with unnecessary stress and less inheritance.
