Legacy

How can you support UFB without prejudicing your heirs?
The charitable legacy to UFB.

This regime results from article 64, § 2 of the laws regulating the inheritance. 3 conditions are to be fulfilled :

  1. Write a will
  2. Bequeath a part of your estate to your heir(s)
  3. Bequeath the balance to United Fund for Belgium, who will pay the full amount of the legacy duties.

These legacy duties paid by the UFB are 8.8 %. This percentage is much lower than what your heirs would normally pay.

Here follows an example:

Situation 1

John bequeaths €10.000 to his daughter Mary
Mary pays 30% of the legacy duties, that is €3.000
€10.000 - €3.000 = €7.000

Situation 2

John bequeaths €7.000 to Mary
UFB pays:

  1. Mary’s legacy duties
    30% of €7.000 = €2.100
  2. UFB’s own legacy duties
    8.8% of €3.000 = €264

UFB receives €3.000- €264- €2.100 = €736
