    Persons making donations will have until the 1st of September 2019 to decide how they should be taken into account when they die. The legislator had first wanted to extend the deadline to the 1st of March 2019, but testators will now have until the 1st of September 2019 to submit a declaration of maintenance.

    However, it is better not to delay “because if you were to die on the 30th of September 2018 and had not submitted your declaration of maintenance, the notary will have to apply the new rules to donations made before,” warned Open-Vld parliamentarian Carina Van Cauter.
