Wills - new EU succession law

The new EU succession law, which becomes effective on 17 August 2015 will lead to major changes within the European inheritance law. Affected are Swiss citizens living abroad and individuals domiciled in Switzerland, with assets in other EU countries. To make sure that wills under the new inheritance law serve their purpose, they have to run through a test.
