Foundation / Endowment Fund


What does the term foundation mean?

Think of a foundation or endowment fund as an association of property, i.e. movable, immovable, financial and intangible, for a specific purpose. It is managed by the board of directors and is subject to the control of the supervisory board or the auditor.

The endowment fund is not established for the purpose of doing business, and the use of assets must be governed by the conditions set out in the articles of association or articles of incorporation. It is possible to establish a foundation from assets reaching a value of 20,000 EUR. Foundation assets can be movable and immovable property, securities and cash.

Income from said property is exempt from tax and the foundation can participate in the business of joint stock companies.

With a foundation you protect your investments

The foundation is an excellent tool for asset management, it has legal personality and the assets invested in the foundation are protected by investment protection agreements. With a foundation, you separate the assets from the original founder, but you can manage them.

Another interesting advantage is privacy protection. Property deposited in the endowment fund is separate from the person of the depositor. The foundation is listed as the owner of the property in all registers.

The specific conditions for the management of the foundation may differ, but in general, the profits of the foundation are not subject to taxation and the tax liability does not apply even to the transfer of assets to the foundation. However, beware of one pitfall.

Once you have contributed property to the endowment, it is forever the property of the endowment and will not be returned to the depositor even if the endowment is dissolved.

Advantages of establishing an endowment fund:

  • Tax exemption
  • The foundation is a legal entity
  • Property is protected
  • The founder can lead the foundation
