Due to the rise in estates that include foreign assets, such as bank accounts or shares in a non-UK company, legal professionals are commonly faced with a number of challenges during estate administration. To complicate matters further, processes often vary between different overseas jurisdictions, meaning specialist knowledge is often required.
That’s why on Wednesday 24th May at 12pm, Title Research’s Head of Business, Anthony Allsopp, will provide an overview of the requirements and processes that can be expected when international assets form part of an estate. More specifically, Anthony will cover:
Gathering assets held in UK estates from North America
- Transferring or selling shareholdings in the US
- Application of the US/UK tax treaty and obtaining a Transfer Certificate
- Medallion Signature Guarantee stamp – what it is and how it is used
- Escheated shareholdings and escheatment claims
- Shareholdings listed in Canada
Resealing a Grant in foreign jurisdictions
- Where a reseal is required
- Obtaining foreign Grants
- Challenges and timescales
