Hello wise awebbers!
New client. Father died 2020. House sold by Estate June 2021. CGT is payable by Estate. The solicitor has distributed all funds to the beneficiaries before paying the CGT. Son and Daughter are beneficiaries and executors but have strained relationship.
Daughter has contatcted me to assist with the CGT reporting. The issue of paying the CGT has cropped up. Understandably she only wants to pay her relevant share of the CGT and have her brother pay his. But she has no contact with her brother.
Does anyone know what HMRC's standpoint on this would be? Who would they consider liable for the CGT? And how would they go about recovering it?
