Benefits of Using a Trust
There are many types of trust, with the most popular being a discretionary trust. A trust can provide various benefits, such as:
Asset protection – The assets of the trust are separated from the assets of the beneficiaries. Therefore the assets of the trust may be protected from creditors if a beneficiary was to be sued.
Tax planning – With a discretionary trust, the trustee has the flexibility to determine which beneficiaries are to receive the income and/or capital of the trust. This can help to reduce the overall tax paid by beneficiaries.
Tax losses – While a trust cannot distribute losses they may carry forward losses to be used in certain circumstances in future years
Capital gains – A discretionary trust is entitled to a 50% discount on any capital gains made on the disposal of assets held by the trust, if held for greater than 12 months.
There are many kinds of trust that may be utilised for your specific set of circumstances. Trusts are often used in estate planning to ensure that loved ones are looked after when the parents or grandparents have gone.
