My friends at The Korean Tax Blog have an excellent post called Your Complete Guide to Estate Registration in Korea. The accounting firm at the Korean Tax Blog assists IPG Legal in all inheritance tax matters. For more information on Korean Inheritance Law please see: Who Inherits What, When, and How in Korea?, Renouncing an Estate in Korea and Korean Legal Reserve of Inheritance.

The article, notes, in part tips for a successful inheritance. The article notes that for a successful inheritance process you should:

  • Seek Professional Help: Consult with a legal professional.
  • Be Mindful of Deadlines: Korean inheritance law is strict about deadlines, particularly for filing the inheritance and paying taxes, if you miss the deadline there will be a 20% of the tax amount penalty.
  • Understand Cultural Nuances: Inheritance can involve sensitive family dynamics, so it’s important to approach the process with an understanding of Korean cultural norms.

The full article can be found at: Your Complete Guide to Estate Inheritance Registration in Korea and is worth a read.
