Free transfers (“mutations à titre gratuity”) concern two categories: transfers by death (legal or testamentary successions) and inter vivos transfers (direct or indirect donations, shared donations (“donations-partage”) or manual donations).

Each inheritance share is subject to inheritance tax. The heirs are jointly liable for the payment of these taxes (article 1709 of the French civil code).
