Simplify and Streamline the
A will is a key element of succession planning and ensuring the right people inherit your assets after your passing. Inheritance can be complex; however, properly distributing your estate can be made far more straightforward with a will. At France Tax Law, our team of French law specialists can assist with a range of services relating to French wills.
Whether you reside in France or have property there, a French will may be necessary to manage your assets' succession properly. Having a French will be drawn up by a French solicitor or receiving professional advice when creating a will can also simplify and streamline the succession process. This can help relinquish some stress for your beneficiaries during an already emotional and challenging time.

We can assist with your succession planning. Before determining how you wish for an estate to be distributed after your death, it is important that you fully understand the full ramifications of your intended succession plan. Our team can guide you through this and work with you to find an optimal solution. We understand both French and UK inheritance tax laws and can advise how this may affect your beneficiaries. We can also advise on matters of cross-border inheritance and how this may impact your estate and heirs.
In addition to our estate planning services, we also offer French wills and holographic wills services to establish how you wish for your estate to be shared after your passing.
Firstly, it is important to determine the appropriate way to establish your succession plan. Our French wills experts guide the best way to leave your assets to your heirs. In France, there are several ways you can do this, including; testaments (French wills), donation entre vifs (a gift to a child or family member), and donation-partage (distribution of assets to family members). We can walk you through each, how they differ, and why you may wish to use one over the other.
Once we have established how you wish for your estate to be distributed (and the consequences of these decisions), we can assist in creating a valid French will. Whether we, ourselves, draw up your will or you create a holographic will (a will written and signed by yourself), we can ensure it is legally valid for total peace of mind.
