Inheritance tax and inheritance law in Bermuda

INHERITANCE
Technically, there are no applicable estate duties or inheritance taxes on property.

Stamp duties are however payable for the ‘Affidavit of Value of Deceased Estate’. This duty is levied on the value of the net assets (estate). A family home transferred upon death may be exempted from stamp duty.
