    I recently learnt about ADCB offshore banking in Jersey which doesn't have a very high minimum balance requirements compared to other offshore banks. My main objective is to not go for a costly will that is necessary here for estate planning so I expect ADCB offshore bank is truly offshore -...
  6. Articles: Europe
    New rules introduced by the European Commission should make it easier for expats to choose whether their foreign assets are subject to local inheritance law or laws from their native country. But, as with many things within the EU, it is not likely to be plain sailing. For example, Denmark...

    I think I have read every thread on inheritance taxes, but I have not seen an answer to this question. My wife and I are Americans with no kids. If we are tax residents of Spain and I die, will my wife have to pay any taxes on our foreign (non-Spanish) joint assets? We jointly own bank...

    We get lots of posts here asking about conditions in the various countries: How are the schools? What about the cost of living? What areas/cities are the nicest? Job market? Taxes? etc. But one thing many expats-to-be ignore until it's too late is the issue of death, wills and inheritance...
