Creation of a business and a concubine contract In the event that you are starting a business, it is important to think carefully about what is the ownership of the company and what is private property. Will your partner participate in increasing the value of the business or is it important for you to protect your partner in the event of a problem? You can agree on this in a concubine`s contract. If you cohabit, all property and debts are held separately and your partner is automatically protected from potential creditors. Notary Houtepen will discuss with you what you wish to have agreed through your concubine contract. We discuss in detail your wishes so that your concubine contract corresponds to both your current situation and your future situation. Make an appointment for a non-binding informal interview. If you want your partner to become your heir, you must have a will drawn up in which you put it in place. If your partner inherits from you, he can make a substantial difference between having or not having a concubine contract and for the exemption from inheritance tax and the percentage of tax payable (for the amount greater than the exemption). In the absence of a cohabitation contract, only a small amount is exempt from inheritance tax.
In this case, 30 to 40% of taxes are levied on this amount. However, in the case of a concubine`s contract, the exemption applies up to a much larger sum. Beyond this amount, 10 to 20% of taxes are paid. Children and concubine agreement If you have children in common or if you have children from a previous relationship, these children are your legal heirs. If you die, your children will be entitled immediately to their legal share. Do you want to protect your partner from this or command your partner to inherit alone? This is possible with a notarized concubine contract in combination with a will. In the case of concubine agreements, the biological mother automatically has parental responsibility. Your partner can obtain parental responsibility by recognising the child and applying for joint parental responsibility. . . .
