Be aware of the EU Succession Regulation 2012

The EU Succession Regulation of 2012 is applicable to all cases of death on or after August 17, 2015. Under this regulation the law of the deceased's habitual residence at the time of death (law of the domicile) is decisive. This  EU Regulation  is not (and will not become) valid in the two common law states Great Britain and Ireland, on the one hand, and in Denmark, on the other but is important for all persons who (might) have their - future - last domicile in an EU member state, other than those mentioned not having ratified the EU Succession regulation. Expatriates  who are planning on working and staying for a longer period in a EU member state should be aware of the EU Succession Regulation's new concept.
