LG Group Chairman Koo Kwang-mo, who inherited an 8.8 percent stake in LG Group's holding firm from his late father earlier this month, paid his first installment of the inheritance tax, the company said Friday.

According to the holding firm, Koo and his sisters are set to pay taxes totaling 921.5 billion won (US$821.5 million) to authorities.

Under South Korean law, Koo is allowed to make the payment through installments for upwards of five years.

Koo's father -- the late chairman Koo Bon-moo, who held an 11.3 percent stake in the holding firm -- died in May at the age of 73.

The late tycoon's two biological daughters have inherited the remaining stakes.

The new LG chairman is the son of the late tycoon's younger brother Koo Bon-neung, but he was adopted into his uncle's family in line with the LG family's long-standing tradition of handing the reign of corporate power to the eldest son. (Yonhap)
