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.
