Trusts are essentially a way of managing assets. They can take a variety of forms and they may be set up for a variety of reasons. Often, the motivation will be to minimise tax liabilities – for example with respect to inheritance or long-held family assets.
For those responsible for managing a trust, taxation is a perennial concern and periodic reviews can be a valuable way of protecting the value of its assets.
Whether we’ve just helped you set up a trust or whether you’re managing one that’s very well established, our directors and tax experts are ideally placed to help you with a variety of legal and operation concerns.
We can help by:
- Giving strategic advice on the management of the trust itself
- Preparing annual accounts
- Maintaining management accounts to give trustees a clear picture of the trust’s performance
- Calculating liabilities
- Preparing a tax self-assessment
- Managing accounts submissions
- Informing trustees of payment deadlines
- Dealing with issues such as the appointment of new trustees
