Lasting power of attorney / living will

Do you have questions about representation of interests during life? We can provide you with advice on measures in case you as a high-net-worth individual and/or entrepreneur are unable (temporarily or otherwise) to make your own decisions.

For Mazars, estate planning is customization. From an integrated approach, we keep an eye on the relevant financial parties, (tax) structures, international issues and constantly changing laws and regulations. In addition, we help you by providing an overview of your financial and tax position, providing practical information about the development of your assets and providing services in the relevant areas of expertise. In all cases we do this through personal contact and short lines of communication.

Representation of interests during life

The lasting power of attorney (also referred to as 'living will') has been developed in the Estate Planning Practice to provide for the situation in which a person is (temporarily) no longer able to look after personal and/or financial interests themselves due to an unexpected calamity.

Our specialists can advise you on customised provisions for your care or to protect your interests during life. Hereto, a distinction can be made between financial and medical matters. In addition to powers from family law, contract law, business law, procedural law and tax law, wishes regarding euthanasia, for example, may also be included in the lasting power of attorney.

For your private assets, our advice focuses on matrimonial property law, inheritance law and gift, inheritance, income and transfer tax. For your business position, it is mainly about structuring based on strategic themes such as continuity, control, financial and fiscal interest.
