    On Zoom in Ixelles, Belgium

    Estate Planning for Americans in Belgium

    Join us online February 22, 6-8pm CET, for a conversation with tax attorney Marc Quaghebeur of Cabinet David, who will be discussing the issues surrounding inheritance law and taxation for Americans living in Belgium. Marc Quaghebeur is an international tax lawyer who specializes in cross border estate planning. He will explain the Belgian inheritance rules, the Belgian inheritance tax rules, and will take us for a walk through the minefield of estate planning between Belgium and the US.
