Probate represents one of the biggest business opportunities to the accountancy profession in a generation, enabling you to create an additional revenue stream from new and existing clients.
In order to apply for accreditation to provide probate services from ICAEW or ACCA, you must first attend a suitable training course and pass an assessment (although there are exemptions for those who have another qualification that meets all the learning objectives for probate).
Our Certificate in Probate and Estate Administration has already helped hundreds of firms acquire the training and accreditation needed to apply for a probate licence. Courses and assessment days are running throughout the year, but spaces are limited.
