I have a client who was born in Edinburgh, moved to England where he married and had children before divorcing a few years ago. After his divorce he moved to Hong Kong before settling in Holland where he sdaly passed away.
At the time of his death he had bank accounts in the UK, Hong Kong and Holland and appeared to be resident in Hong Kong for income tax purposes (although he did complete tax returns in the UK in recent years as well).
He has received a death benefit payment and the pension company is requiring a grant of probate. Assuming he is domiciled in the United Kingdom is it correct that I can apply for a Grant limited to the UK Assets and if so who would be entitled. He remains divorced and has two children, one who is 18 and one who is 12?
