Inheritance Tax Law in Germany

German Inheritance Lawyers

If you want to preserve and protect your family assets long-term, you should not leave anything to chance when clarifying tax issues. The amount of inheritance tax to be paid depends on the value of the inheritance and on, which tax bracket you belong to as an heir and whether the corresponding tax allowances are exceeded in your case. However, by acting planned and prudently, the tax-saving potential can be exploited to one’s advantage.

To provide our clients with the necessary support in clarifying the inheritance and tax law aspects in the event of an inheritance, the German law firm Schlun & Elseven offers competent and committed legal assistance. Whether it is the preparation of your inheritance tax return or the transfer of an inherited property – our German inheritance lawyers are at your side with their expertise and many years of experience. Our highly specialised practice groups work together in cross-jurisdictional cases to provide you with the best possible support from a single source.
