The UK Personal Finance Show
Ross Anderson, Partner in Trust Management was recently a guest on the podcast where he discussed options for protecting your estate.
Setting up a Trust serves various purposes, with the most common being asset protection for those unable to manage their affairs, such as minors who can receive payouts when they reach a specific age, like 18 or 21. Additionally, Trusts can form part of an effective plan to mitigate your tax liabilities and protect assets in the event of future unforeseen circumstances.
Trusts also allow for the establishment of rules that beneficiaries must follow to receive their designated benefits. For example, a charity trust may provide financial support to exceptional scholars or beneficiaries who meet specific criteria.
Furthermore, Trusts offer income-generating opportunities. Properties in Trust can generate rental income, while investments and savings held in trust can yield dividends or interest.
What To Consider When Setting Up A Trust
When establishing a Trust, clarifying your intended purpose is crucial. Whether it’s safeguarding assets for your grandchildren, benefiting the wider community, or providing for a disabled family member, having a clear vision ensures the right model and accurately reflects your intentions in the Trust Deed. Careful consideration should be given to selecting beneficiaries and determining when they can access funds.
Navigating the tax implications of holding assets in a Trust requires expert advice, as different Trust types attract varying tax treatments. Our team can provide comprehensive guidance on the tax implications of your decisions, ensuring you choose the most efficient and tailored model for your needs.
Equally important is the selection of Trustees responsible for administering the Trust. Having faith in their decision-making process is vital. While safeguards can be built into the Trust Deed, you should reflect on the Trust’s operation, your anticipated involvement, and potential pitfalls that may arise. Our team can help you make informed decisions to set up a trust that aligns with your goals and ensures your peace of mind.
