A trust is a legal arrangement in which assets are assigned to a board of trustees to look after on the behalf of others, the beneficiaries. There are many reasons why trusts are used, including protecting assets from claims by third parties, minimising Inheritance Tax liability, or holding assets on behalf of children until they reach adulthood. During the period of the trust, the trustees manage the assets – typically cash, property, or investments – and must make decisions based on the best interest of the beneficiaries, while there are also important tax implications to consider, which vary according to the type and terms of the trust.
