Fixed Trusts v Non Fixed Trusts

Published on 03 Mar 2011 | Took place at Parkroyal, Parramatta , NSW

Just because a trust may be referred to as a unit trust in the trust deed and may contain unit trust type features, does not automatically mean it is a fixed trust. Incorrectly classifying a unit trust as a fixed trust may have serious adverse tax implications.

This event examined and discussed the distinction between fixed trusts and non-fixed trusts for the purposes of:

  • the trust loss provisions
  • the 45 day rule in relation to franking credits
  • non-arm’s length income or special income in relation to trust distributions to superannuation funds
  • land tax
  • practical case studies
  • traps and pitfalls for the unaware.

This event was part of the March Breakfast Club 2011 and also run in Sydney on the 1st of March.
