Inheritance and gift tax
In Germany, all property accruals, through gifts during one’s lifetime or in the event of inheritance, are subject to the German Inheritance and Gift Tax Act (Erbschaftsteuer- und Schenkungsteuergesetz).
In principle, the area of inheritance and gift tax is complex, but offers a great deal of scope for optimized structuring, especially if planning is made during the lifetime of the deceased.
Special attention should be paid to the transfer of business assets, realistic valuations and, of course, the clever use of tax allowances.
