LEAP App Is Changing How Probate Is Managed

LEAP Legal Software have launched their LEAP Probate App, making the process simpler for those who work in the sector. It’s hoped the App will strike the balance between the care and attention needed to carry the probate work out with the need to work efficiently.

The App is built with the end-user in mind. By collecting and responding to client feedback early on in the development life cycle, better end-user satisfaction was achieved, enabling lawyers to practise probate at optimal efficiency without compromising on service.

Providing a simple interface, the LEAP Probate App allows practitioners to input estate information with ease, completing complex inheritance tax calculations and estate accounts quickly and accurately and automating the generation of the relevant IHT forms, avoiding the need to re-type information.

The LEAP software allows for simple data capture, mirroring the process of the HMRC IHT400 form electronically. Once the data is entered in LEAP, the App uses that information to produce accurate IHT400, Schedules and Estate Accounts which can be saved back to the LEAP matter with one click.

There is no requirement to re-type data between the software and the IHT400 forms with the data re-used for the Estate Accounts calculations, making the process more efficient. Security is ensured as all data is encrypted and stored safely within Amazon Web Services’ data centres.

John Flanagan, Head of Product and Innovation at LEAP UK said:

“By talking to our clients and learning their processes, we have enhanced our probate software to improve the user experience. This new functionality within LEAP is the most efficient way to manage probate, allowing a practitioner to take on a higher case load and generate more profit.”
