Asset planning

We draw up an inventory of your current situation, both family and patrimonial, including the family's composition, the movable and immovable assets in Belgium and abroad, the marriage contract, the will, the deed of gift, etc.
2.
Current consequences and perspectives
Based on the inventory, our expert conducts a thorough analysis of your assets and estate, and we determine the tax and legal impact of your current situation.
3.
Solutions and opportunities
We examine the possibilities for improvement, considering your wishes and factors such as the age of your children or your professional activity and prepare a written report.
4.
Implementation of your plan
Follow-up with your lawyer, accountant, advisor, and notary: validation of draft deeds, "bank gifts".
