Often, you do so without thinking too hard about it – you just follow your heart. But there are times when you think about these things very consciously. Making a will is one of those times.
Many people like the idea of ballet remaining a relevant art form in the future as well. By including the Dutch National Ballet in your will, you can help make that possible.
You can name the Dutch National Ballet a (co-)beneficiary in your will. This means that you entitle the Dutch National Ballet along with your other beneficiaries to the whole inheritance. Your estate will then be divided among the beneficiaries in accordance with the conditions of the will.
You can also include the Dutch National Ballet in your will in the form of a legacy, whereby you lay down that the Dutch National Ballet is to receive a fixed amount or a property.
exemption from inheritance tax
If someone inherits from you, they are charged inheritance tax. This, however, does not apply to the Dutch National Ballet, as the company is registered as an organisation for the common good (ANBI), and is therefore exempt from paying inheritance tax. So your contribution will benefit the company in full. It is therefore well worth settling your contribution to the future of ballet now.
