This is my third attempt at this question so here goes. My brother died tragically in Vancouver Canada on 24th December,2014. No Will and no power of attorney. He had just divorced in August, 2014 and it appears that my two sisters and myself are beneficiaries. Two of us live in Ireland and the other sister lives in UK. Both my sisters have social welfare pensions and families. I have a social welfare pension and another small pension and I do not have children. My sister in UK is a UK citizen, my sister in Ireland is an Irish citizen and I have dual Canadian/Irish citizenship but am resident in Ireland. We passed all my brothers accounts, shares etc. to the trustees of a Canadian bank to sort out his Estate. They have now asked us for our bank account detail and SIN numbers. I understand the thresholds for siblings is very low and the tax quite high in Ireland. I do not know what it is like in the UK. Not having had experience in these matters - should we see a solicitor, an accountant, a tax expert? We need to find out what the most tax efficient way of receiving this money from Canada. Your help is much appreciated.
