Donation with reservation of usufruct subject to inheritance tax as from 1 June 2016?

The Flemish Tax Administration states that, in such a case, the assets purchased in this way are deemed to be part of the donor’s estate in full ownership. Inheritance tax will be due on the value of the full ownership of the assets so purchased.

No inheritance tax, however, is payable if the following evidence is provided:

  1. The funds of the donation were not earmarked for the purchase of the bare ownership. The donation was not made to finance the purchase of the bare ownership;
    OR
  2. The donation was subject to gift tax En savoir plus
