Trusts are a useful way to maximise your assets and deal with your affairs in the most tax-efficient manner. They are available in a variety of forms and can be created during your lifetime or by your Will.
For example, trusts can be used to safeguard your interests if you’re buying a house with someone, especially if you’re not married. They can also be used to protect your assets from bankruptcy or divorce and, if you have children, ensure their inheritance is protected if your estate passes to your surviving spouse.
If you’re a grandparent, you might use a trust to provide for your grandchildren’s education. Plus, if you’re a business owner, there are additional benefits of using trusts to take advantage of special provisions for business assets.
