Parental Donation and Gifts parental-donation
Parental donation can only be made from parents to children, while gift can be given from anyone to anyone. Parental donation can be in respect of any asset, such as money, houses, land, fields, usufruct or bare ownership to a property. The notarial form is not required for the parental benefit, unless the benefit  includes immovable property, in which case the drawing up of a notarial document is necessary. In the event that the parental donation includes real estate, the notarial document is signed by both the parent and the child and then transferred to the competent Land Registry Office or registered in the competent Cadastral Office. On the contrary, the donation, whether it concerns an immovable or a movable thing, is always made with a notarial document.

The new law increases the tax-free amount of gifts and parental donations of assets for the beneficiaries of the A' category of par. 1 of article 29 of Law 2961/2001 to eight hundred thousand (800,000) euros from one hundred and fifty thousand (150,000) euros.

The above mentioned applies to gifts and parental donations of movable and immovable assets, which are established from 1.10.2021.
