The allowance is 99% of the tax amount, after applying the deductions that were already in force.
This 99% allowance is the same for both donations and inheritance, although each tax has its peculiarities.
3. Requirements to qualify for the allowance
In order for the allowance to be applied, it is essential to reflect the donation in a public deed and justify the origin of what is donated, pursuant to the Law on Prevention of Money Laundering.
4. What can be donated?
A donation is an act by which a person transfers one thing to another, without the second person having to deliver something in return.
You can make donations of money, real estate or even waive a personal loan between family members. It is very important to obtain good advice before making any donation, since the donation, in addition to a tax bearing the same name, can lead to capital gains in the donor's income and/or subject to property transfer tax.
