Is compensation taxable?

Payment made to relative

An  SA client is in the process of being awarded compensation from a private claim for asbestosis for deceased father.

This is beyond my scope of expertise and I need technical advise - where is it best to get this advise?

Many thanks in advance

The value of the right to pursue a claim should have been declared as an asset within the deceased's estate for inheritance tax purposes (HMRC Trusts & Estates Newsletter August 2013) but other than that there are no tax consequences

Is this a dependency claim made by your client, or a claim (as Michael is assuming) made by or on behalf of her deceased father during his lifetime?
