The multidisciplinary topic of administration of deceased estates is an often-neglected topic, be it in the academic curriculum of either law or accounting.


The multidisciplinary topic of administration of deceased estates is an often-neglected topic, be it in the academic curriculum of either law or accounting. This webinar workshop aims to provide practical guidelines and tips on the smooth wrapping-up of a deceased estate and addresses issues commonly encountered, focusing on:

  1. Estate planning and wills.
  2. Role players in the administration process.
  3. Appointment and responsibilities of executor.
  4. Preparation of liquidation and distribution account.

On completion of the session you should have gained enough confidence to monitor the smooth execution of such a process and will be able to attend to the wrapping-up of a simple estate on your own.

Course Content

In this comprehensive session, we unpack and explore some of the following key aspects:

  • The drafting of a will (which might include generation-skipping).
  • The applicability of taxes such as transfer and estate duty.
  • Accrual claims by or against an estate.
  • Common law and statutory claims for maintenance by either a dependant of the testator or a surviving spouse.
  • Re-distribution agreements.
  • Section 18(3) estates.
  • Monetary advances to dependants during the period when an estate is frozen.
  • The role of trusts.
  • Executor’s fees.
  • Master’s fee tariffs for deceased estates.

Upon wrapping-up of an estate, the executor is responsible for the preparation of a liquidation and distribution account – this is one of the most important tasks and responsibilities of an executor. In this session, specific emphasis will be placed on this aspect.
