Overview

You have reached the final step of the deceased estate administration process, congratulations. Now that you have determined the full value of the deceased estate, know exactly what it is made up of and have paid all necessary debts and taxes, you can now distribute the deceased estate to the eligible Beneficiaries. You should undertake the following to finalise and distribute the deceased estate:
  • finalise the Assets & Liabilities Inventory;
  • determine through the Will or legislation which assets and liabilities transfer to which Beneficiary;
  • inform Beneficiaries of their final inheritance;
  • distribute the deceased estate; and
  • close the estate accounts.

34.1 Key Considerations Before and After Distribution

34.1.1 Time Limit for Executor to Distribute Estate
34.1.2 Possible Claims & Conflicts
34.1.3 Reduce Your Personal Liability
34.1.4 Seek Legal Advice

34.1.1 Time Limit for Executor to Distribute Estate

How long after probate can funds be distributed? It is a difficult balance to determine the ideal time to distribute the deceased estate.

On the one hand, you as the Executor or Administrator want to ensure you are not personally liable, which may be the case when distributing too early, not completing all the necessary steps or not waiting for the various claim periods to expire (see Step 34.1.3 below).
On the other hand, if you wait to distribute after 12 months of the death, the Beneficiaries may be eligible to claim annual interest between 2% above the official cash rate target published by the Reserve Bank of Australia and 8%.

Therefore, completing distribution of estate to Beneficiaries between six to 12 months from the date of death is a general guide. However, depending on your situation, the size and complexity of the estate and possible disputes, requiring additional time may be reasonable.

Note: All persons involved in the estate administration, including Beneficiaries, need to be aware that claims against the estate can still be made by anyone at this point and beyond the expiry of the claim periods and notices.

34.1.2 Possible Claims & Conflicts

Claims can be made by:
  • family members of the deceased person, including previous partners and persons who were left out of the Will;
  • any person who was dependent on the deceased person; and
  • creditors (persons or companies who are owed money by the deceased person).

There may also be conflict between you as the Executor or Administrator and Beneficiaries, or conflict among Beneficiaries if there is disagreement over the distribution. Where you have experienced conflict or hostility during the administration process, the deceased person or Beneficiaries are in complicated relationships or the family structure is unusual, it is advisable to find out how you can reduce your risk by speaking with a lawyer.

34.1.3 Reduce Your Personal Liability

A claim made against the deceased estate after distribution, may mean that you as the Executor or Administrator are personally liable and may have to pay such a claim from your personal funds. This could happen when you make distribution of estate to Beneficiaries too early and not adhering to the required timeframes in your State/Territory.

You can however reduce the risk by following these timeframes:
  • deceased estate should only be distributed after six months from the date of the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration (WA, VIC) or six months from the date of death (NSW, QLD);
  • the intent to distribute the deceased estate was published in accordance with the relevant State/Territory requirements (see Step 34.7 below);
  • the time specified in the notice of intent to distribute the deceased estate has expired; and
  • the Executor or Administrator does not have notice of an application or intended application for a family provision claim/order or other claim against the deceased estate.

Note: It is important to remember that family provision claims can be made up to 12 months from the date of death in some States/Territories. Hence it may be best to wait for the 12-month period after the death has expired to distribute the deceased estate depending on the family situation of the deceased person. Interest payments may be claimed by the Beneficiaries after 12 months, which needs to be taken into consideration as well.

If you are unsure and want to be certain, it is advisable to ask a lawyer to review your situation and confirm you are ready to distribute.

34.1.4 Seek Legal Advice

simplyEstate’s mission is to empower Executors and Administrators to complete the deceased estate of a loved one with as little or much help as needed, in honour of the deceased person and ensuring their wishes are fulfilled.
However, we also think it would be unfair if you had to pay from your own pocket any claims and legal fees due to a dispute once the estate has been distributed, just because something went wrong or was unexpected.

We strongly encourage you to talk with one of our Trusted Partners in your State, who specialise in this area. They can review the estate administration to ensure everything was completed accurately and in the required time, nothing was missed and your situation is evaluated for any potential risks.

Note: The cost of meeting with a lawyer to review the deceased estate administration prior to making distribution to Beneficiaries will be paid from the estate. It is your right to seek professional assistance to fulfil your duties as Executor or Administrator with confidence and reduce your personal risk and liability.

34.2 Pay all Final Debts and Bills (if Solvent)

As outlined in Step 14 – Pay Bills & Other Debts, you should have always kept a good eye out for any estate bills, debt notices or repayment requests that are due to avoid late payment, additional interest or other charges during the estate administration.
Now that you are finalising the estate and preparing for distribution, you should check that all final debts and bills of the estate were paid and finalised. If there are outstanding payments make these now.

If you want to recap this topic again just to be sure you have thought of everything, refer to Step 14 – Pay Bills & Other Debts and return to the final step once fully understood and actioned.

34.3 Submit a Final Estate Tax Return

After all debts and bills were paid, you will need to lodge a final estate tax return (trust tax return) if capital gains resulted from the sale of assets or income above the tax-free threshold of $18,200 (for 2021/22 financial year) was generated from the deceased estate assets such as:
  • interest on ‘Estate of Late’ bank accounts;
  • investment returns such as dividends on shares;
  • income from an investment property or letting the deceased person’s home;
  • income from a trust as a Beneficiary;
  • income from capital gains after the sale of an appreciating asset;
  • income from franked dividends;
  • money from a business; or
  • any other form of income as defined by the ATO.

You will need to receive a tax assessment to know how much tax is payable from the estate and either pay immediately or retain that portion of funds aside before distribution.

If you need to lodge a tax return for income generated, you should follow Step 32.3.3 Deceased estate tax return (trust tax return).

34.4 Reconcile Final Assets & Liabilities Inventory

Once all debts, bills and taxes were paid, you should finalise the Assets & Liabilities Inventory. You should check that all items making up the distributable assets and liabilities of the estate are accurately reflected and are in possession of the deceased estate. This process of checking what you have listed against the valuation report and bank statements is called a reconciliation and ensures the figures captured are correct and all assets are held in trust by the estate.

The simplyEstate Assets & Liabilities Inventory is a great tool that helps you capture all assets and liabilities during the deceased estate administration process.

Once the inventory is reconciled and finalised, you should not make any changes. If you have to make a correction, you will need to reconcile again.
You will likely need to lodge this inventory with the Supreme Court as part of the note of intent to distribute the estate, explained below.

34.5 Review Eligibility of Beneficiaries and Inheritance

The eligibility of Beneficiaries and how much they are entitled to depends mainly on the Will, if one was put in place by the deceased person, and/or each State/Territory legislation.

34.5.1 With a Will

Where a valid Will is in place and you have received a Grant of Probate from the Supreme Court in the relevant State/Territory, the eligibility and distribution of the deceased estate will be governed by that Will.

Because the Will went through the Grant of Probate process, you can be confident that the Will is valid and was not contested if you provided statutory notice in line with the State/Territory requirements as outlined in Step 27.8 Publish the Statutory Notice.

The Will may however still be contested, or claims could still be made against the estate, even at this stage. However, the process outlined in Step 34.7 – Publish Notice of Intent to Distribute below will ensure that sufficient notice is provided to avoid issues once the deceased estate was distributed and protect you as the Executor who managed the estate.

34.5.2 Without a Will (Intestate)

If you as the Administrator have applied to the Supreme Court for Letters of Administration as outlined in Step 27 – Apply for Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration, the eligibility and entitlements of each Beneficiary are determined by law in each State/Territory as outlined below.

The following persons related to the deceased person may be eligible to receive an inheritance, listed by priority. Note that in some instances not all persons listed will be a Beneficiary and mostly it will be a combination of Beneficiaries that are eligible.
  • Spouse (including de facto partners based on rules);
  • Children;
  • Parents;
  • Siblings (brothers and sisters);
  • Nieces and nephews (if their parents, the siblings of the deceased person, died before the deceased person);
  • Grandparents;
  • Aunts and uncles; and
  • Other levels of relatives in various combinations.

If no Letters of Administration were needed, you will need to follow the rules set out in the relevant State/Territory legislation. simplyEstate provides an Intestate Beneficiary Assessment Tool below to help you determine who may be an eligible Beneficiary.

It is strongly recommended to seek legal advice to support with this or verify your proposed distribution.
simplyEstate works with Trusted Partners across Australia in your State as listed to the right or below.

If no valid Will is available, the following Intestate Beneficiary Assessment Tool will give a general indication about which Beneficiaries may be eligible and how the estate may be distributed as inheritance for each State/Territory.

34.6 Prepare and Issue a Statement of Distribution of Estate to Each Beneficiary

If you have determined the Beneficiaries and their entitlements based on the Will, intestacy rules or any other legislation in the relevant State/Territory, you should inform each Beneficiary of their inheritance.

Using the reconciled final estate documents including the: you can prepare a statement of distribution of estate that includes the estate value and inheritance details. You can use the Estate Distribution Letter Sample that provides the complete structure of the letter including:
  • the residual value of the estate;
  • the inheritances and what they are made up of (e.g. real estate, land, cash, artwork, jewellery etc.);
  • how assets were dealt with;
  • expenses incurred from the deceased estate administration;
  • request for consent;
  • request for bank details for cash transfers; and
  • arrangements to transfer property, furniture or other assets inherited.

Each Beneficiary should review and sign this document before issuing any inheritance, in case a Beneficiary does not agree and makes a claim against the estate.

Note: If you foresee potential disagreement or conflict between Beneficiaries or with the proposed distribution, you should seek legal advice to draft a tailored statement of distribution of estate that is legally binding.

34.7 Publish Notice of Intended Distribution

Now that you have informed each Beneficiary and have agreed the distribution, depending on your State/Territory, you may need to publish a notice of intent to distribute.

This notice is required in some States/Territories to protect you and the Beneficiaries by allowing official and sufficient notice about the intent of the deceased estate distribution. This again allows any creditors, other family members or previous spouses who believe to be a Beneficiary, to make a claim. As part of this application, the Supreme Courts will likely need submission of the final Assets & Liabilities Inventory (in the court’s required format) stating all assets, liabilities, receipts and disbursements of the deceased estate.

Tip: The notice of intent to distribute provides some protection to the Executor or Administrator’s personal assets should any claims be made from the deceased estate after it was distributed. Especially, if there may be a risk of dispute among beneficiaries and family members, complicated relationships and family structure or other issues, it is advisable to find out how you can reduce your personal liability.

34.8 Distribute the Deceased Estate

Once you have made the necessary applications to the relevant Supreme Court and the notice periods in the relevant State/Territory have expired, you can follow the below steps to distribute the most common assets.

Note: You should carefully read 34.1 Key Considerations Before and After Distribution before proceeding.

34.8.1 Cash

Cash is the simplest asset to transfer as it can be transferred from the ‘Estate of Late’ bank account to each Beneficiary’s bank account electronically or at a branch.
Always make sure to double-check the account details are correct as funds transferred to a wrong account may not be recoverable.

When transferring large amounts, it may be better to validate the bank details by making a small payment first to check receipt with the Beneficiary before transferring the remainder.

34.8.2 Real Estate and/or Land

Where real estate and/or land is distributed to one or more Beneficiaries as outlined in the Will, Grant of Probate, Letters of Administration or as per the distribution rules outlined in the various Acts in your State/Territory as specified above, you should follow these following steps.

You, as the Executor or Administrator, can transfer the real estate to Beneficiaries only if the real estate was transferred to the deceased estate and the title currently shows your name as outlined in Step 30.3.3 – Transfer Real Estate.

If you used storage facilities, these can be cleaned and closed to ensure you don’t incur any further fees.

34.9 Close Accounts

After the estate is fully distributed, you can close all associated accounts such as:
  • ‘Estate of Late’ bank accounts;
  • Investment accounts used to generate income during the administration process;
  • Insurances held while the items were held in trust;
  • simplyEstate subscriptions and accounts; and
  • anything else that you put in place or made use of to assist with the administration.
