Tax on an inheritance?

When someone inherits something, it is typically subject to taxation, known as inheritance tax. Charitable organizations (with ANBI status, like Diergaarde Blijdorp) do not have to pay inheritance tax on a share of an inheritance or a legacy. This allows charitable organizations to use their portion of inheritance for one hundred percent towards their mission.

Leaving a legacy is a significant decision. We understand that you want to be well-informed in making this choice. For personal advice or more information on leaving a legacy, you can contact Natasja Schipper. You can reach Natasja at:
