Trusts can be created during a lifetime or in a will. Our role is to discuss your needs and requirements and to work out the best kind of trust for your situation. For example:
- To protect vulnerable beneficiaries, such as disabled people or children who have lost a parent.
- ‘Interest in Possession’ where beneficiaries have a right to all the trust income.
- Discretionary trusts where the trustees decide whether or not to pay income and capital to the beneficiaries.
Following a death there can be income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax to consider and the relevant forms to complete for HM Revenue and Customs.
We can also assist with the redirection of estate assets and advise on tax savings where advantageous and the beneficiaries agree.
Impartial financial planning advice
Our Independent Financial Planners are also on hand to offer financial advice in areas such as investments, pensions, and insurance protection.
