Sir Terry Wogan leaves over £1m for family
Terry Wogan’s wife and children received over a million pounds from his will.
The Mail reports he divided his assets to avoid a large inheritance tax bill, and was ‘well advised’ about how to legally avoid paying more tax than necessary.
The newspaper says “Sir Terry, who died from cancer in January 2016 at the age of 77, left a net estate worth £1,047,576 to his wife Helen and his three children Alan, Mark and Katherine. The bulk of this will go to Lady Wogan, to whom he was married for 51 years.”
The amount does not include any assets he owned or previously owned – including his 12-acre country estate in Buckinghamshire and his holiday home in France.
Details of his will were made public after probate was granted on Wednesday.
