Abstract:     
In this article I explain the conditions for a valid donation in Belgium and then focus on the much debated question whether a donation can be validly passed before a foreign notary. The argument of simulation, as raised by some authors, is not valid as long as the deed chooses for Belgian law as the applicable substantive law. As to the applicable formal law, it is evident that the choice for the foreing law of the place where the deed is signed, is valid. Arguments drawn from tax simulation rules do not apply since the matter at hand is civil law.
