Fixed trusts fixed entitlements presentation

Published on 10 Oct 08

There are a number of substantial tax provisions which practitioners regularly rely upon which work on the presumption that they're dealing with a "fixed" trust. But are they? The common example is a unit trust which is generally assumed to be a fixed trust. Often it is not the case. This presentation covers:

  • what is a fixed trust?
  • what is a ‘vested and indefeasible interest?'
  • when do you need a fixed trust?
  • trust losses
  • CGT events affecting trusts
  • CGT scrip for scrip rollover
  • company ownership interests and losses
  • amendments to make a trust fixed - is it a resettlement?
  • mining hybrid trust gems or creating false leads.
