Chartered accountants in france : Real Estate Planning

The French succession tax system works quite differently from the different inheritance tax systems all over the world and the effect on your heirs depends on their relationship to you. Stepchildren and unmarried partners, for example, are seen as ‘non-relatives’ and could face tax rates as high as 60% on inheritances and  gifts.

You should also be aware that France’s ‘forced heirship’ succession law defines how your legacy is divided. This means your natural children could inherit up to 75% of your estate regardless of whether that’s your intention. This is a complex approach and can have unexpected consequences, so you should take personalised advice to make sure it’s suitable for your aims and objectives.

Our advisers can present legitimate options to ensure your estate is distributed according to your wishes while protecting your heirs from paying more tax than necessary.
