A trust can be set up in your lifetime or in your Will. A trust is created when a person (“the settlor”) gives assets to other people (“the trustees”) to hold, not for their own benefit, but for the benefit of others (“the beneficiaries”).

What are the benefits of placing assets into a Trust?

  • minimising tax, either during your lifetime or as part of your Will planning
  • a vehicle to pass property over to family members at a certain age or to provide additional protection to a vulnerable beneficiary
  • protecting funds to be used for a specific purpose such as grandchildren’s education or assistance with a deposit for the purchase of a property
  • safeguarding money obtained during an injury claim and helping to ensure that state benefits are not lost.
