The rules governing the taxations of donations and inheritances can often appear complex and a lack of planning can significantly reduce the value of assets passed on to the next generation. For families looking after future generations, tax planning for inheritance and gift tax should be done with foresight. Families can face differing tax laws which have to be taken into account in order to be aware of double or even triple taxation issues if they are spread overseas with family members and/or properties in different countries.

To assist you and your family in your inheritance planning journey, our inheritance tax experts have prepared country specific overviews which will reveal and help you understand some of the most important facts regarding inheritance tax. These guides will focus on gift taxes, and what is tax under inheritance tax laws. The information also include tax-free allowances and offer a guide to assessments, valuations, trusts, and foundations. Please note that this summary is not deemed to be comprehensive and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.

We hope these guides provide you with a snapshot of information to help you consider your next steps and if you would like to explore in more detail, please contact one of our dedicated Inheritance Tax team advisers to benefit from tailored specialist tax knowledge.
