UHY Ross Brooke Chartered Accountants


What is a trust?

A trust is a way of managing money, investments, land or property and requires a trustee to manage the trust, a settlor to puts the assets into trust and a beneficiary who benefits from the trust.

Are there different types of trust?

Yes, and with differing tax treatment depending upon the exact terms of the trust.

Why set up a trust?

Trusts can be set up to control and manage assets for a number of reasons including:

  • Children or vulnerable adults who cannot manage the assets themselves
  • Protecting family assets
  • Tax planning while you are still alive and also when you die
  • A tax-efficient way of passing on your business to your employees
