  1. Taxation on gifts from family

    Hi,   Does anyone know what taxation factors one should consider when receiving financial gifts from relatives abroad? Specifically, a grandparent in another EU country who wishes to send their grandchild in Germany funds for future higher education.   - Is there an amount the grandchild can receive free of tax? - Would the tax free amount be any better/higher if the grandparent were to send the funds to their child, for safe keeping, rather than their grandchild?   Grateful for any insights!   Thank you, Joe
