The world is getting smaller and it is very common to find people owing assets in different countries. Actually, there are thousands of foreign citizens holding properties in Spain, either as a main residence or as holiday home.
When the owner dies, several basic questions may arise:
«Which law applies to the succession? What happens with the assets abroad? Does the last will cover all the assets wherever they are? How shall the heirs pay the inheritance tax? Where? How much? How to avoid paying twice?»
Successions with cross-border elements are usually characterised by their high complexity. Furthermore, in Spain there are 7 different jurisdictions for what regards civil inheritance laws and there are 17 different jurisdictions, one for each region (“comunidad autónoma”), for what applies to inheritance tax.
At DiG Lawyers we have a team formed by specialist lawyers, all of them multilingual, with a high degree of experience giving advice to foreign clients and covering all the subjects related to cross-border inheritances, from taxes to most basic paperwork. Our team is used to cooperate with law firms located in different jurisdictions.

We also provide succession planning services, either from a civil and tax scope.
We can provide advice in English, French, German, Italian and Chinese. The international inheritance team is formed by:
Mr. Francisco José Vinaches (Partner)
