AFPOP Seminar - New Inheritance Law (in German)

AHK Portugal

Following you will find the afpop Press release regarding the new Inheritance Law, held by Dr. Rathenau on 2 October 2015 in Lagoa.

Die Deutsch-Portugiesische Industrie- und Handelskammer und afpop laden Sie herzlich ein zur Veranstaltung zum Thema


Wer im Ausland lebt, muss aufpassen: In Portugal ansässige Deutsche, Österreicher und Schweizer sind von den neuen Regelungen direkt betroffen. Der Erbfall richtet sich nicht mehr nach der Staatsangehörigkeit, sondern nach dem gewöhnlichen Aufenthalt des Erblassers. Das neue Recht kann bestehende Testamente hinwegfegen und zu anderen bösen Überraschungen beim Vererben führen.

Der Referent Dr Alexander Rathenau (Rechtsanwalt und Advogado) gibt Antwort auf die wichtigsten Fragen mit Bezug zu Portugal und erläutert dabei, welche Vorkehrungen getroffen werden können.

Zusätzlich zum Erbrecht wird der Referent kurz über Patientenverfügungen, Vorsorgevollmacht und Generalvollmachten sprechen.

Die Teilnehmer erhalten Gelegenheit Fragen zu stellen.

Wann:          Freitag, den 2. Oktober 2015

Uhrzeit:       18:00 Uhr

Ort:             Lagoa - Deutsche Schule Algarve

hotelverleichBei der Unterkunftssuche setzt jeder Urlauber andere Kriterien an. Der Eine sucht nur eine günstige Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten und ist viel am Strand unterwegs und der andere möchte mehr Entspannen und ein schönes Ambiente zum Lesen haben.
Businessreisende haben nochmal andere Anforderungen, die auch ein einfaches Arbeiten mit dem Laptop erlauben und absolute Nachtruhe garantieren.

Nutzen Sie die Hotelsuche von, denn hier ist die Besonderheit, dass Sie nicht nur die Hotelzimmerpreise miteinander vergleichen, sondern auch geografisch zugeordnete Privatzimmer entdecken, die oftmals vom Platzangebot und dem Ambiente im großen Gegensatz zu den Hotels stehen.
