Based in Waltham Abbey on the Essex, Hertfordshire border Apple Probate and Estate Services LLP was borne out of an extension to the Partners existing Accounting Practice, Apple Accounting Services Ltd which has traded in the area since 2004.

Our objective is to provide a personal and supportive service to clients through clear communication, empathy and a wealth of experience.

Why choose us?



We are one of only a relatively few qualified accountancy firms in the country who are licensed to carry out probate work. This, combined with our expertise in all areas of accounts, tax and estate administration means you can have total confidence in us handling the whole process for you.


Background knowledge

If the deceased was a client of Apple Accounting Services, we are likely to have all the necessary financial information and background details to make the probate process as smooth as possible. If they were not a client, we can still deal with the probate application should their existing accountant not be licensed to do this work.

Quicker processing = reduced costs

As accountancy and tax specialists we’re used to gathering and calculating financial and tax related information. In doing so, we can reduce the amount of time it takes to compile the necessary information. By speeding up the process we can help you to keep the costs down, leaving more for the beneficiaries.

Competitive pricing

Whilst solicitors and banks can also carry out probate work, they tend to charge a higher fixed percentage, based on the value of the estate; which could be as high as 4% + vat even for simple estates. We feel that we are very competitively priced and we’re happy to give you a quote based on the volume and complexity of the work which needs to be carried out. We are confident that our approach to gathering the relevant information, calculating what tax is due and administering the estate is quicker and more succinct, therefore keeping costs to a minimum.

Personal service

Whilst carrying out any probate work we are always sensitive to your needs and emotions during this time. You can be sure that we will treat your legal and financial affairs discreetly and in the strictest confidence and take the administrative burden away from you wherever possible.
