Expat Financial Affairs
 
Two of our tax lawyers, Dirk De Groot and Marc Quaghebeur, have presented a workshop at the Expat Financial Affairs Event on 22 March 2013. 

The first edition of Expat Financial Affairs was organised by the British Chamber of Commerce to give all expatriates in Belgium the opportunity to ask the experts questions about money issues such as:
-   estate planning
-   inheritance tax and other tax issues,
-   financial planning,
-   pension planning,
-   investment products
-   general economic issues.

Dirk De Groot explained how high the inheritance is for expatriates (and any other individuals) who do not have any close family: the tax rates can be punitive.  One solution, apart from spending it all, is to give or to give back to charity.  And by making a double bequest, to a charity and to distant relatives and friends, one can minimise the tax. That is "Leaving money to a charity: a clever way to pay less inheritance tax"

Marc Quaghebeur presented "Rest in peace: cross border estate planning in ten questions". This presentation was based on the book "Rest in Peace, A Guide to Wills and Inheritance Tax in Belgium", which Marc has just published with taxation.be and which is available from the English speaking bookshops in Brussels.

Pictures of the event, and our colleagues in action, can be seen here.
