Our experts will work with you on a long-term basis to meet your expectations and objectives in a personalised manner.

Change of

residence

Mobility and support (administrative, civil and tax recommendations in both the country of departure and arrival, contact with local advisors, coordination and planning of the various stages).

Asset planning

in 5 steps

1.
Inventory of your assets
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".
5.
Continuous re-evaluation
Permanent monitoring of your assets and planning according to the evolution of your situation and your specific needs.

governance of your family business

You want to avoid family conflicts and ensure the long-term survival of your family business. This ambition requires the support of all stakeholders in a common project. We help you to think about your family business governance issues (patrimonial, mixed or professional) in order to :
