During the case assessment process, you stated that you're looking for more information about what's fair - Executor’s Commission.

As a rule of thumb, the maximum commission allowed by a court will be 6% on income derived and 5% on capital realised. The maximums are generally reserved for complicated, long duration or time-consuming estates.

It’s important to note that an executor’s commission cannot be levied without an order of the court or unanimous agreement of beneficiaries. Executors should keep records of work done in their executorial role to justify commission.

You should call 1300-580-413 or email us today to get advice about your particular circumstances.
