Case study

One of our clients asked us to help him purchase an apartment for his older son, who was about to start a four-year degree on the east coast of the United States. He had expected his younger son to follow suit, but he decided to study in France instead. Our client ended up selling the apartment six years later, and the capital gain helped to cover the cost of his son’s studies.

Cross-border inheritance

If you intend to give a gift or leave an inheritance involving property or beneficiaries in another country, you will have to pay careful attention to the tax and legal implications. You will also have to ascertain which country’s laws apply in a given situation.

Heirs’ rights

Direct heirs, starting with children, have a legal right to a certain proportion of their parents’ estate. This right can apply to up to three quarters of the inheritance, depending on the relationship of the other heirs to the deceased.

Planning ahead

Handing over part of your estate while you are still alive offers a number of advantages. For example, parents can transfer their home to their children while maintaining the right to live in it, with the option of adding annuity payments if necessary.

Saving for your children

In Switzerland, parents have the option of using personal retirement savings products to build a nest egg for their children. This money can come in handy for their children’s future studies or to help them as they embark on their career.

Here’s how we can help you to achieve your life goals

We will sit down with you and analyse your wealth situation: your finances, your current needs and your life goals. We will then come up with a comprehensive solution aimed at optimising your financial and tax situation.
