Service Description

Inheritance tax is levied on the transfer of assets upon the death of the testator. Inheritance tax is levied as an inheritance tax, i.e. it is linked to the specific acquisition of the respective heirs, beneficiaries of compulsory portions, legatees or other acquirers.

Gift tax is a tax on the acquisition of assets through inter vivos gifts. Inheritance tax and gift tax are governed by the same law.

The question of whether and how much inheritance/gift tax is payable depends on the value of the acquisition and the family relationship. Each acquirer is entitled to a personal allowance, which applies both to acquisitions by reason of death and to gifts. The personal allowance can be used again every 10 years through gifts.

The following are subject to inheritance tax (gift tax)

  • acquisitions upon death (e.g. inheritance, legacy),
  • inter vivos gifts,
  • grants for specific purposes,
  • the assets of a foundation, insofar as it is set up essentially in the interests of a family or certain families, at intervals of 30 years (inheritance tax).
