Do you have trust tax issues?

Trusts have been used for centuries to pass wealth between generations and enable people to manage how their loved ones can benefit from that wealth – both whilst they are alive and after death. However, dealing with the tax matters surrounding the creation and administration of trusts can be complex, so it is worth getting advice from experts in this area.

If you have a trust or are thinking about creating one, RJP can help you. We have advised many clients on trust tax and inheritance tax related matters and can advise you on whether a trust is right for your circumstances. Give us a call.

Why have a trust?

Do you have assets and wealth that you want to leave to your loved ones, but also want to retain some control over? Do you have concerns that your wealth may not end up in the hands of your immediate family? If so, a trust might be the answer and will give you peace of mind.

Using a trust isn’t just for ‘rich people’. Circumstances can change and relationships can become complicated. Establishing a trust enables you to ensure that the wealth you have built up in your lifetime – probably the result of years of hard work – will be used in the way you intended, to benefit the people you intended it for.

Trusts aren’t just about minimising tax – they are a way to retain control over how your estate is distributed. Although in some cases trusts can be tax efficient, they can also be costly to administer. It is important to get the right advice because dealing with the tax implications of trusts and estates is complex. RJP can help you make the right choice to address your personal and family needs, whilst maximising potential tax planning benefits.
