The Queen Elisabeth Competition is a recognised non-profit association and benefits from special inheritance tax provisions.
Various kinds of bequests are possible, including the “duo legacy”, whereby a recognised association receives a bequest on condition that it pays the inheritance tax for which another beneficiary is liable. If you inform us of your intention to leave a legacy to the Competition, we will be more aware of your tastes and will be in a better position to meet your requirements. Your legal advisor can tell you more about the different possibilities.
