Exempted successions

The legal provisions provide for a certain number of exemptions in the field of inheritance.
In particular, inheritance between spouses or partners, inheritance between brothers and sisters living together and under certain conditions.

Calculation of inheritance tax

Inheritance tax is calculated according to the net share of each heir, i.e. after applying deductions based on family ties.
The amount of tax due is then calculated by applying a rate as provided for by the general tax code and tax reductions where applicable.

Deductions

  • - In direct line (parents-children): deduction of €100,000 on the share of each ascendant.
  • - Between brothers and sisters: deduction of €15,932
  • - In favor of nephews or nieces: allowance of 7 967 €.
  • - In favor of handicapped persons: allowance of 159 325 €.
  • - If these allowances are not applied, an allowance of €1,594 is applicable.

  • - for other successions: 305 € per child beyond the 2nd
