Trusts and succession planning paper

Published on 21 Oct 06 by TASMANIAN DIVISION, THE TAX INSTITUTE

As clients continue to adopt more sophisticated structures for business and investment, greater planning is required in order to ensure that a client’s estate and succession planning objectives are met. This paper considers some of the opportunities and traps that arise with trust structures in a succession planning context including:

  • are people whom we think are beneficiaries really beneficiaries?
  • the role of the appointor/guardian/supervisor in passing control to the next generation
  • testamentary trusts - some key issues
  • ownership of main residence and tax implications of occupation rights
  • trust cloning or splitting - what are they and what are the traps?
