One of the fundamental duties of an executor is to provide a full and proper accounting of his or her administration of the estate to the beneficiaries. Depending on the circumstances, the accounting can take different forms. Whether the executor is preparing an informal or formal set of accounts, we assist executors with their estate accounting obligations, including calculating executor compensation.
We have assisted executors with all formal requirements relating to the formal passing of accounts in court form. We are also retained by government organizations such as the Children’s Lawyer for the Province of Ontario and the Public Guardian and Trustee of Ontario to protect the interests of minor beneficiaries or incapacitated individuals who are entitled to a share of an estate.
