Travelling Trusts - Where is a trust resident?

Published on 28 Apr 2010 | Took place at Sydney Harbour Marriott, Sydney, NSW

With an ever increasingly mobile population, practitioners are often faced with a client that arrives in Australia with a pre-existing trust, or leaves Australia with a trust arrangement in place. Many difficult trust and taxation issues arise in these circumstances.

This event considered practical legal and taxation consequences of changing residence, including:

  • establishing the residence of a trust
  • changing the residence of a trust and domicile v redomicile
  • changing the proper law of the trust and its administration, including issues concerning the rule against perpetuities
  • CGT cost base uplift on arrival and valuation issues
  • the transferor trust regime
  • blind trusts – is there an attributable trust interest?
  • avoiding resettlement
  • characterisation of distributions received post arrival
  • Sections 96B, 96C and 99B in operation
  • temporary resident provisions.
