Web seminar: Cross-border inheritance – What do you have to consider?

10. July 2023

GrenzInfoPunkte are organising free web seminars on 16 and 17 August


The topic of inheritance law can quickly become very complicated – especially in a cross-border context. What happens, for example, if you live in Germany as a Dutch citizen and receive an inheritance from the Netherlands? In which country is inheritance tax then payable? And how do you make sure that matters concerning your own inheritance are properly regulated if you are a German living in the Netherlands? Since many people in the border region have family members in the neighbouring country and could therefore be confronted with this challenge sooner or later, the GrenzInfoPunkte are organising two web seminars on cross-border inheritance law on 16 and 17 August. Participation is free of charge.

In the two web seminars, Branko Reumkens, partner and notary in the law firm LexQuire Tax & Law, will explain the most important regulations and pitfalls on this topic. He is familiar with both German and Dutch law. The topic of cross-border inheritance is particularly close to his heart.


Registration and further information


Both web seminars start at 4.30 pm. First, there will be a lecture in German on Wednesday, 16 August. Reumkens will then shed light on the situation of Germans living in the Netherlands. The web seminar on Thursday, 17 August, is aimed at Dutch people living in Germany and will be held in Dutch. Interested parties can register for the German (www.grenzinfo.eu/webinar-erbrecht-wohnen-nl) and Dutch web seminar (www.grenzinfo.eu/webinar-erbrecht-wohnen-de) free of charge via an online form. You will then receive an invitation link to participate in the web seminar via Zoom. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask general questions on cross-border succession law. However, due to time constraints, it will not be possible to address specific, personal situations.

Those who need individual advice can contact the GrenzInfoPunkt in their region. Further information on working, studying and living in the neighbouring country as well as contact details for your nearest GrenzInfoPunkt can be found at www.grenzinfopunkt.eu.


About GrenzInfoPunkt


The GrenzInfoPunkte provide an independent, easily accessible service for cross-border commuters in the German-Dutch border region. Tailor-made information is provided and the staff are familiar with the culture, language and systems on both sides of the border. The GrenzInfoPunkte themselves cannot and are not allowed to advise on questions of inheritance law and inheritance tax; for this, cross-border commuters must contact a notary. Knowledge in the areas of taxation, social security and labour law is kept up to date through joint training courses. The GrenzInfoPunkte are part of a large network and the staff have good contacts with experts from the organisations in both countries. Further information can be found at www.grenzinfo.eu.
