The research regards the civil law and fiscal aspects of (testamentary) administration, the exchange of assets for depositary receipts and trusts/entities that qualify as separated private estates as defined by the Dutch Income Tax Act 2001. The civil law research focuses on the question to what extent these legal arrangements can be used to create a durable division between control and beneficial ownership, both generally and in relation to the Dutch forced heirship rules. In addition the Dutch fiscal consequences have been analysed, with a focus on personal income tax and gift and inheritance tax. In case of fiscal impediments the analysis includes the question whether these impediments are caused by imperfections in Dutch fiscal law and proposals to remove these impediments have been made.
