The responsibilities of the guardian of a minor 

When the property in a child’s name exceeds EUR 20,000, their guardian must inform us of this fact. We advise guardians in the management of a minor’s property and supervise their activities. The guardian’s duties include drawing up a property inventory, an annual statement and a final statement. 

What must the guardian do? 

The parents or guardians who have custody of a minor act as the minor’s guardians and are jointly responsible for the management of the minor’s property. If a minor has two guardians, they must both sign the applications, notifications and account forms.
