For many years trusts have been used as an estate planning vehicle. If effectively structured and managed, assets owned by a trust may fall outside of your estate and therefore not attract death duties on death. The continuity and management of these assets will also not be affected by your death.
It is crucial that the trust deed is accurately drafted, that an independent professional trustee is appointed and that the trust is properly administered to prevent any adverse tax and legal consequences.
