September 2020 saw a change to probate practice, with the move to e-filing for part of the application process. From 14 September 2020 new probate applications are no longer made using the paper Inland Revenue Affidavit (Form CA24), which has been replaced by the online Statement of Affairs (Probate) (SA2) for deaths occurring on or after 5 December 2001. The SA2 is submitted directly to the Revenue through myAccount if an application is made by a personal applicant or through Revenue Online Service (ROS) if the application is made by a solicitor. Probate applications for deaths before 5 December 2001 will still require the submission of the CA24 with the probate application. When the SA2 is completed and submitted electronically, a Notice of Acknowledgement is generated and submitted with the application to the Probate Office.
