More freedom to decide on your legacy

From 2023, a new regulation will apply to inheritance law in Switzerland. The mandatory inheritance shares will be reduced, thus increasing freedom and flexibility when writing a will.

Inheritance law revision 2023

Testators will be now allowed to transfer up to half of their assets to individuals or legal entities, as well as to associations, foundations and organisations of their choice.


You can support our efforts to make the world a safer place for future generations

From 1 January 2023, testators will be able to dispose freely of a larger part of their inheritance. They will now be allowed to transfer half of their assets to natural or legal persons, associations, foundations and organisations of their choice.

In principle, wills already written remain valid, but it is advisable to check them again to avoid any inconsistencies in future interpretation.

Together, we can act

To protect civilians from mines and unexploded ordnance

Every year, thousands of civilians, including many children, are maimed or killed in accidental explosions of unexploded mines and munitions. Even after a conflict has ended, explosive remnants of war remain a threat, sometimes for decades. Our deminers locate and destroy these deadly remnants of war around the world.

More than 5,000 regular private donors already support our work for a mine-free world, as well as several public institutions and foundations. In order to be able to respond quickly to the most urgent needs, private donations, including wills and legacies, are essential. They ensure the independence and sustainability of our humanitarian work.
