Your inheritance questions answered at free Estate Planning for Expats seminar on 28 November

11:56 16/11/2019
The Bulletin and ING invite you to Estate Planning for Expats in Belgium, a free event in English that covers all aspects of marital contracts, taxes and inheritance laws

Last year, Belgium’s inheritance laws changed. Having been the same for many years, the changes saw notaries working overtime to learn the new regulations and explain them to the wealth of families concerned that their current estate plans might no longer serve their needs.

To help wade through the changes and to get you started thinking about your own assets and to whom they will be left, ING bank and The Bulletin are hosting the free event Estate Planning for Expats in Belgium. The event on 28 November is entirely in English and specifically geared toward expats, with information on the new inheritance laws and estate tax planning.

Marc Quaghebeur, partner at Cabinet David and author of The Bulletin's free annual income tax guide, will discuss the dos and don'ts of cross-border estate planning for expats in 2020. Frederic Helsen, from Berquin Notaries, will give an overview on "Life after death: estate planning in Belgium".

Also speaking at the free event is Dave Deruytter, head of expatriates and non-residents at ING, with a talk entitled "Your life planning priorities".

There will be plenty of opportunties to ask questions during the free seminar - and a reception will follow the event. Advance registration is essential.
