There are a number of reasons why you might wish to set up a Trust. You might want to provide for your children, grandchildren and other relatives, while retaining control over the money or assets in question.
You may want to use a Trust for Inheritance Tax planning. You might want to shield assets or wealth from exposure to care costs, or as a way of providing for someone.
We can assist you with the creation and running of a number of different types of Trust, whether simple or complex, short or long term, including registering the Trust with HM Revenue & Customs and dealing with the ongoing administration of a Trust. These tasks include Annual Trust Accounts, Annual Trust Tax Returns, Drafting Trustee minutes, resolutions and appointments (distributions from the trust) and winding up a trust when it comes to an end.
The types of trust we can assist on include:-
