star this property answer text <p>The cost of the fee and reasonable expenses incurred by the executor are recoverable from the estate. Published HMRC data suggests that on average 25% of an estate’s assets are cash which suggests that these fees are affordable[1]. In exceptional cases where an executor cannot afford to pay the fee, there are safeguards in place, including the Lord Chancellor’s power to remit a fee.</p><p> </p><p>As stated in our published Impact Assessment, it is unlikely that demand will change in response to the planned fee changes.</p><p>[1] Inheritance Tax Statistics, available here:</p><p>https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/inheritance-tax-statistics-table-124-assets-in-estates-by-range-of-net-estate-and-tax-due</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This information is not held centrally.</p><p> </p><p>HM Courts &amp; Tribunals Service (HMCTS) records numbers, waiting times and outcomes of appeals by benefit type, but will not necessarily identify appeals made specifically because applications for benefit were unsuccessful. Personal Independence Payment (PIP) consists of a daily living and a mobility component, both or either of which can be paid at standard or enhanced rate. Therefore, claimants for PIP may have claimed for both components, and only been awarded one, or sought the enhanced rate and only been awarded the standard rate. A claim may be successful, but may not have been at the level sought. HMCTS is unable to isolate such appeals.</p><p> </p><p>Information about the volumes and outcomes of PIP appeals to the First-tier Tribunal (Social Security and Child Support) (SSCS) is published at:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/collections/tribunals-statistics" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/collections/tribunals-statistics</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Latest figures (to June 2018) indicate that since PIP was introduced, 3.5 million decisions have been made, and of these 9% have been appealed and 4% have been overturned at tribunals.</p>
