A trust or settlement is a fund that holds assets controlled by trustees for the benefit of specific individuals. We advise clients on how to establish a new trust, as well as working with trustees of existing trusts on their ongoing administration.
Our clients use trusts for different reasons, depending on their circumstances. They are a tax efficient way of protecting assets for the next generation, they can also provide much-needed protection for underage or vulnerable beneficiaries or to protect your business or your home.
Trusts have their own separate complex regulations and are subject to separate tax rules. It is important to make sure that you have taken robust and appropriate advice when setting up new trusts.
