Getting trust distributions right paper!

Published on 13 Nov 08

This paper explains in plain and practical terms:

  • the present controversy involving trusts and distributions of income
  • what happens when trust income and tax income aren't equal
  • why reading a trust deed is critical to ensure that the distribution is legally effective
  • sample extracts from trust deeds and sample minutes to effect valid distributions of trust income
  • why you need to get it right - the distinction between income and capital distributions
  • why "failsafe" clauses in trust deeds can be an effective way of dealing with disputed trust distributions
