How to organise an estate inventory

If your deceased loved one had a home or permanent place of residence in Finland, an inventory of their estate must be arranged within three months of death.

During the estate inventory meeting, the estate's funds and debts are determined, as are the heirs and legatees. This information is marked down in the estate inventory deed and will be used in the distribution of inheritance and payment of inheritance taxes. 

The estate inventory deed must be submitted to the tax authority within a month of the estate inventory so that the tax authority can handle the payment of inheritance taxes.
