Succession planning

Our planning covers the arrangements of our clients‘ property relationships upon their death, namely by drawing up solutions, which meet our clients’ needs, and their subsequent implementation, , both in straightforward and complex circumstances, be it because of international relations, complex family structures, or the passing on to successive generations of control in family businesses. Our team of experienced and specialized tax advisors support our clients on all questions arising from a tax law point of view relating to succession planning.

When implementing such solutions we use various means, not only matrimonial, concubinage or inheritance agreements and last wills, but also public deeds for the establishment of foundations or trusts and further agreements, such as for the implementation of the generation succession. Because of our in house notaries, the transactions can be notarised and implemented immediately.
